Thanksgiving 16

I have had the opportunity over the past month to be in several revival services.  I have attended them because an Evangelist and dear friend of mine was the Preacher in each meeting.  These Churches all had some things in common.  One thing that stuck out to me was their music.

Music is an important part of the Christian life.  It soothes the savage soul I have heard all my life.  This has to be in reference to I Samuel 16:16, “Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.”

Music is a vital part of our worship services.  God does not want some half hearted noise coming from us.  He deserves and expects our best no matter how good or bad it might be.  Music prepares the heart for the preaching of God’s Word.  That is why it is so important.  It is also magnifies the Saviour.  Our Father delights in our worship no matter if we can or cannot sing.

So, how are you doing?
