Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual SONGs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Music can certainly be a ministry and is very much a part of the worship service in most churches today. Sometimes I am afraid that we get ourselves so bogged down in a schedule that we fail to allow the Holy Spirit to guide us through a worship service. Just remember that the schedule in the bulletin is not written in stone. We should be flexible enough to allow God to direct us even if it means a change from our regular routine.
People who are responsible for the music are also responsible to be students of the Word of God. It is only through study and prayer that we can let the Word of Christ dwell in us richly. If music is a ministry then it should be Christ centered and Biblically sound.
It takes more than an good voice or the ability to play a musical instrument to qualify a person to be in the music ministry. A person must have a desire to put Christ in the center of the ministry and be willing to allow the music and the message to be the main focus, and not their talent.
