I've been listening to a lot of my favorite songs on YouTube this morning.
Music is a beautiful gift that GOD has given to His creation.
In Luke 19:37-40 we read about the "multitudes praising GOD with loud voices for all the mighty works they had seen. The Pharisees said to Jesus, 'Master, rebuke them'. Jesus answered and said unto them,"I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."
As I watch some of my favorite hymns, Christmas and praise songs, it bothers me that some of the artists are putting their heart and soul into the music are not living a life that honors Christ.
Then as I mulled it over it occurred to me that the message in the song is being spread and used by GOD. It is possible that those in the audience or the artist or someone watching the YouTube video will be ministered to.
I have to remember that GOD is in control and He can use the foolish to open the eyes of the blind.
The gospel will not return empty, but will fulfill His plan!
So listen to the gospel spelled out in song. Let it speak to you.
