“Microphone” is a song about a man who genuinely wants to be an instrument for God. He wants to be a microphone for Jesus. The power is not in us but in Him and we amplify it by being obedient, by growing in Christ-likeness.
As believers we are the messengers for the King therefore being a microphone requires us to literally say what He says in His word. The messenger never changes the message.
Listening to this song with this truth in mind can help us understand our purpose no matter what we do, whether you are a singer-songwriter or a cashier at Walmart, we all are instruments for God and what we choose to do with that power is up to us. Each and every one of us has the potential to be a microphone, to change lives and move mountains.
I feel like the scripture that mostly relates to this is in Ezekiel 37, The Valley of Dry Bones. Ezekiel was God’s messenger to the dry bones, He was merely an instrument and he said as God told him to say.
“Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.”Ezekiel 37:9-10
You might be the next instrument for God to use, But you need to be a believer in Jesus Christ, committing your life to Him. This means to forsake all others, all your desires, repenting of your sins and choosing to live a life that is righteous for Him.
Your works cannot earn your salvation but we are justified by the work Jesus has done on the cross for us. We choose to do works because we love Him, not because we want to bring attention to ourselves but to bring all eyes to Him who is worthy of all praise.
