This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows me well, but I love music. I grew up listening to bands like The Beatles and, even now, I enjoy hearing what great new sounds are coming out.
I also love music for another reason—the way it can touch a person’s heart. The right lyric in a song can reach someone in a way that the spoken word can’t. They can bring encouragement to someone who is hurting, and plant seeds in the heart of a person who is in need of hope.
My opinion is that I welcome any attempt to communicate the Word of God to our culture. And I know that music can be a powerful tool for getting Scripture into the hearts and minds of people. Remember, the Psalms were originally meant to be set to music, and the Bible is filled with people who lifted their praises to God through song and music.
If you have written a song or put some music together let me know. Would love to hear it and read the lyric. Who knows maybe what you have is for others to enjoy too. Let the music begin.
This month, let’s sing out our praises to the Lord, and celebrate all that He has done for us!
