Over at Seven Notes of Grace, Ros reviews Katy Perry’s hit song ‘Firework‘. Remember the lyrics:

Do you know that there’s still a chance for you, ‘Cause there’s a spark in you
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine, Just own the night like the 4th of July
‘Cause baby you’re a firework,
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth

The song expresses the potential of human beings to do great things but I know I fail often and in many different ways. But as Ros writes:

God’s truth bleeds through this song, as it proclaims that we are unique beings, the intentional creation of a loving all-powerful Creator. Amen to that! But what she needs to know is that our potential to “shine” comes from outside of us. It’s not “deep inside of you“, as Perry says, waiting for us to ignite it. Our “full potential” is realised when we make peace with God, through Christ, and He enters into our life.

In this way, God shows us what we’re worth! Read the rest of the Seven Notes review here.
