Earlier this week I discovered a very cool passage in the Bible and I think I will dedicate this devo to each and every Christian muso out there as well as all aspiring ones. Check out Psalm 33:1-3 (KJV)
(1) Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. (2) Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. (3) Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
Check out verse 3; "…play SKILLFULLY with a LOUD NOISE." How cool is this! Our God is definitely not a boring God and He wishes us to praise Him with everything we've got. So if you rock hard for Christ and people give you grief about your music, just remember Psalm 33:3.
I pray that God will rise up more musicians out there that will be straight forward about Jesus Christ, and that He is the only way to be saved. I personally think music is the coolest weapon for evangelism, because when you're on stage, with 10,000 watts of sound equipment backing you, people are gonna hear the gospel, if they choose to listen or not.
I also pray that God will bless the talents of each of you guys, I know there's more than music, so I pray for each talent that God has given you. I am really happy that there are so many people out there that use their talents to glorify God. You've really been a blessing and an inspiration to me as well.
Pray for each other and share ideas & stuff. The time has come for all of us to stand together and fight together. Always remember God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6) so be on your guard. It's strange, but pride is the only sin the devil won't let you feel guilty about. Oh well, that's my only my opinion?
God bless you all,
