A Paradigm of Musical Purpose for People of Faith That Will Change the Way You Look at Your Calling

As a person of faith and a worshiper of Jesus, who creates music, my world has been rocked and turned upside down of late by the teachings of Ray Hughes. If you are searching to find your musical “voice”, mission or purpose, or a songwriter searching for true north in that calling, these videos are for you!!!

The Words of His Mouth; My Treasure

[Note: For the sake of distinguishing the Father, God from the Son, Jesus, in this article, the Father, God pronoun will be capitalized and the Son, Jesus, pronoun will be lower case, but in no way meant to diminish His deity.]


Like Paul, I count all things, rubbish, compared to knowing Jesus. I am stirred to study his life, his love & his death; his words, his motives, everything about him. I am, after all, being confirmed to his image and my desire is to be like him. Therefore, I comb his Word, where all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are and where I behold the face of Jesus.

When Men Despise Your Worship

Many believe the woman who entered the room was Mary, the sister of Lazarus. The account in John 12 identifies her as such. The other Gospel accounts don’t mention her name and it says they were at the home of Simon the leper. Details for a scholar most likely, but our focus is not the who or the where but the what.

Keeping the Main Thing, the Main Thing

The day was marked in time. The moment planned from the foundation of the world. “Behold, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world!” John’s words rang from eternity and into the hearing of all those surrounding his revelation of Jesus Christ at the Jordan. [John 1: 29-32]

The Power of Music!

It’s been said, music is the universal language. I don’t know who coined the phrase, but it appears to carry a lot of truth! Artists can travel around the world singing to those who don’t speak their language and still be just as powerful as they are in their native land. Why? Because song has power!

VOICES

“My God’s not dead, He’s surely alive. He’s living on the inside roaring like a lion.”

This was a song written by Daniel Bashta made popular by David Crowder Band and Newsboys. A song of revival and spiritual revolution.

When I think about all the revolutions in the earth and our country, they started with a voice! A declaration of sorts.

PRAISE…..what does it mean for our lives?

praiseI was half asleep this morning, upon waking, which is when most of my great ideas come, when I starting pondering the idea of PRAISE! Yes, in the sense of praising God, but simply about what it means. What does it mean to our ordinary, everyday life?

You Are in Good Company!

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
