Our singing should be such that God hears it with pleasure-singing in which there is not so much art as heart, not so much of musical sound as of spiritual emotion. –Spurgeon
I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. Psalm 77:6
One thing that will divide a church quicker than anything other is this topic of music in the church. I believe music has a vital purpose in a service. Its purpose is to prepare the heart for the message God has laid on His servant’s heart; nothing more and nothing less.
If the music over powers the message…we have missed the boat. We should be singing about His grace, His mercy, His love, etc. Our singing should magnify the majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ! If we don’t then we are not singing to Him!
