LIFE APPLICATION TRUTH-PURPOSE OF MUSIC

October 2nd, 2012

JOHN SHIRK – From Ephesians 5:19.

“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Over the centuries, God has used music as an instrumental tool for worship and ministry. Songs with Christian lyrics have been known to be a source of comfort in troubled times, a source of spiritual growth for the heart that is searching for God, and a source of wisdom to teach us what it means to follow Jesus.

Music is a language to express our love for God and to praise Him for His goodness and greatness. Music is also a means to speak to each other about God’s saving grace through the testimony of Jesus Christ.

We can share His story through a variety of Christian songs today.

The use of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs for worship and ministry is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

    This is so true. Music can get the spirt of God moving so strong in a service, that you dont want it to end!

    Thank you for WJTL. And thank you for playing Amazing Grace by Chris Tomlin. When I requested Amazing Grace or Old Rugged Cross by any singer/version, I was blown away. I never heard that version of Amazing Grace before but then, I’m 58 years old and expected to hear the traditional version. Chris Tomlin’s rendition really touched me in ways I didn’t expect.
