A New Song for a New Life

Have you ever wished that you could simply but effectively communicate the difference between godly music and worldly music to others in the Church today?

I was recently encouraged to read the testimony candidly shared by Adam Waller on his website recounting a time the Lord helped him to put in words this key distinction. I hope the five questions he used Music, the language of the heartwill “resonate” with your spirit just as they did with those who asked him to speak in Korea. Spoken in love, they help to unveil the heart of the issue, accurately addressing music composition as a moral issue—an art and a language of its own, independent of its words or lyrics.

The longer I live, the longer I see the value of using this approach. I encourage you to take any amount of time necessary to sit back, read this account to the end and take your thoughts to the Lord on what has been called a watershed issue of our day. It’s worth it!

    After seeing the “deadness” carnality brings into Christians’ lives, it was encouraging to read this report and see the righteousness that could result from his efforts!

    This post was a great encouragement to me! I especially appreciated the emphasis made on the importance of building stronger families over incorporating more programs.

    Teaching others to be strong in spirit *must* begin with our own application of truth. I have recently been thinking on how the core of evangelism really is maintaining our OWN walk with the Lord. The more Christ-like we become, the more peculiar we will be to others, which will prick their curiosity – leading to explanation of Biblical truths. And the more we know ourselves, the more we can “feed [His] sheep”.

    Thanks for sharing!
