The value of worship music
JOHN SHIRK – David said in Psalm 7:17, “I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.”
Worship music flows out of a heart that is in tune with the Lord. David considered the righteousness of God, and was moved to offer Him thanks. There are generally two reasons to praise God-for who He is, and what He has done. Psalm 150, verse 2 says, “Praise Him for His acts of power.” That fits under the category of what He has done. “Praise Him for His surpassing greatness.” That fits under the category of who He is. Our experience of worshiping God is fuller and richer when we remember both reasons of why God is worthy of our worship.
Jack Mooring of Leeland talks about the mission behind their music in this way: “Through our songs we hope people experience God in such a new way they they are inspired to draw closer to Him.” This is what can happen when we use music as a tool to share our love for God with others.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
