Daily Challenge-Use Music As Instrument of Worship

May 27th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to use music as an instrument of worship.

Music is a gift from God and is a meaningful way to express our love for Him.

Throughout history, God’s people have lifted up their voices together in praise to God. Music can be a picture of how God desires for His people to live in unity with each other. We don’t all play the same instruments, nor do we all sing the same parts, but as we harmonize with the body of Christ, we lift up a beautiful song that glorifies God.

Ephesians 5:19 encourages us to be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Take the daily challenge to use music as an instrument of worship on the journey of faith.

Relationship Building Principle-Unity and Harmony

March 19th, 2015 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Psalm 133:1.

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity.”

Unity is not the same as uniformity. If we think about music, uniformity would be like everyone singing the same note, and playing the same instruments.

Unity blends different voices, singing different notes, using different instruments to turn harmony into a beautiful song.

In the body of Christ, unity is good and pleasant when each person is on the same page, acknowledging Jesus as Lord, and when His name is the anthem of our song. This song becomes a masterpiece of praise when God’s people keep their eyes on the conductor and exercise various forms of service as instruments of His grace.

Romans 12:16 instructs us to “live in harmony with one another.”

Living together in unity is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
