My playlist of the week is the hit song “I Walk the Lline” by Johnny Cash.
The You tube in this post is Joaquin Phoenix performing the song in the movie “Walk the Line” that came out in 2005. You have all likely heard song before, have you seen the movie yet?
The movie “Walk the Line” is about a love story, between Johnny Cash and June Carter – that spans more than 4 decades. And the song “I Walk the Line” is Johnny Cash’s devotion and love toward June Carter. This is the first verse: (They don’t write love songs like this anymore):
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line.
It’s a love song. It’s a love story. And it’s a commitment to that love. No matter what, I walk the line --- for love.
The story of God is a love story – Jesus is God’s love story, God’s love song. Jesus --- the greatest love story that ever lived --- and died. For love, Jesus walked the line ---.
