I didn’t realize how easy it was to take even something as significant as The Lord’s Prayer for granted. Not until a few years ago, when one of my pastor’s dove in to Matthew 6:10, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.

His Kingdom, here on Earth, as it is in Heaven… Not past tense, nor in the future—but right now. Why not, right? Until my pastor posed that question, I had never really thought of it that way. I either read or prayed through that verse and almost subconsciously passed God’s Kingdom to be present among us as something that was to come in some distant, far-off time.

As you will read ahead in our cover interview with Tasha Cobbs Leonard, music—in the right context, of course, and according to Cobbs Leonard—can be as much a part of our spiritual lives as anything else, and we agree. So, if that’s true, then there really must be something to support the phrase, “heavenly sound.”
