Right Now!

On Sunday we had "Church in the Park" in Bel Aire. We used the following Van Halen song, "Right Now" in our outdoor church service. One person painted the cross on a big white sheet while another held up the lyrics to this song. During the solo, we showed John 3:16 and Jesus' words from Luke about our opportunity to experience the Kingdom of God 'right now'. What a fun and unique portrayal of the gospel!

Don't wanna wait til tomorrow,
Why put it off another day?
One more walk through problems,
Built up,
and stand in our way, ah
One step ahead,
one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans,
don't dream about yesterday, hey
C'mon turn,
turn this thing around

(CHORUS) Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon,its everything
Right now,
Catch a magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything

Miss the beat,
you lose the rhythm,
And nothing falls into place, no
Only missed by a fraction,
Slipped a little off your pace, oh
The more things you get,
the more you want,
Just trade in one for the other,
Workin' so hard, to make it easier, whoa
Got to turn, c'mon turn this thing around (CHORUS)
