Music is an essential element to cultures around the world. Songs communicate the stories of life. Certain songs may stir up memories and inspire us.
I often write about songs that have influenced my life at one time or another. Quite often, a sermon will remind me of one of those foundational songs in my own life. For me, I look for songs and music that deepen my trust in God, put my anxieties at ease and in perspective and renew my Hope.
Warren Wiersbe echoed the ability of music to reach us at a deeper level –
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.Colossians 3:16
Nearly two thousand years ago, Paul recognized the power of music and song to help build our faith. Take some time to listen to something that encourages your walk with Christ today.
