Shaking Up Comfort Zones in the Music Industry
[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Mark 1:21-28, Luke 4:31-37]
By Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe
As I was reading the verses above for my devotional I finally got a revelation for the music industry (after about 3 weeks of studying just this particular story). I hate to try to force or figure out intellectually what to teach or share, so I wait for however long for the Lord to give me something before I write these types of blog articles.
The one thing that exploded revelation for me that got me writing right away was what the name of the village meant from the Greek. The word “Capernaum” comes from two Hebrew words. “Caper” means, “a village (as protected by walls).” And “naum” comes from the name of the Prophet Nahum, which means, “comfortable.” Put it together means that these Galileans (which means again, ‘heathens circle’ or ‘gathering of non-believers’) felt protected and comfortable behind their personal space or personal walls. They were stuck in their own comfort zones.
