A fugue is a complicated piece of music to write and to perform. While they can be played by a soloist, the best fugues are played by multiple performers on instruments or voices.
There is generally a main theme called a subject. After it is played in the first “voice”, the next “voice” picks up the theme while the first “voice” has accompanying material. “Voice” after “voice” plays the main theme while the others are playing various accompanying material. It takes a group of “voices” to perform a fugue.
1 John 1:3 NLT – We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
We were designed to be in fellowship with each other and to work together. The above verse tells us that we are also designed to be in fellowship with God. We are to be in fellowship with God and his Son. God states the main theme and our job is to echo that theme. After we present the subject, others around us pick up the theme and express it in their own ways.
Questions for you:
- Who do I fellowship with?
- Why do I fellowship with them?
- Based on my circle, am I developing the right “subjects” in my life?
God, may you always be the “subject” in which I develop my life. Help me to find people that follow You to be in fellowship with. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria!
