Christian Music

January 3, 2015

Music is very important to the Christian believer. Today Christian music takes on many forms. Hymns, traditional, contemporary, rock, pop, country and several others.
Much of it has taken on the beat of the secular world. This is where the Christian needs to be wise in what kind of music they hear.
God loves to be worshiped in song. David, a man after God’s heart was a song writer, singer and played an instrument. Music was the only thing that calmed King Saul when he was agitated.
Does the music honor God? Is it praise to Him or just something that makes the listener feel good. Is it music that would tempt the listener into going back into their old lifestyle or is it something that lifts the soul and the spirit?
Like everything in the Christian life we make choices. Pray about the kind of music you regularly listen to.

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
