Christian Music 4

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.

As we select the songs from our songbooks we should make sure that they conform to the Bible.
Even in our hymnals there are songs that have a message that I personally believe are not Biblically sound.
One of our problems is that we sing songs over and over and many times we don't take the time to read the words and understand what they are really saying.  I won't mention but one by name and that is "Build Me A Cabin In Glory Land."  Jesus said in His Father's house are many mansions.  He did not say a word about a cabin and even though the sentiment is humble and in a way touching it is just not scriptural.
I have mentioned some songs to people that I did not feel were scriptural and were truly not appropriate for church.  Many comment, "I think that is a pretty song...I like that song...they sang that at Grandma's funeral...they played that the night I was saved...etc"
These are not criteria for selecting scriptural music.  Does the message agree with the teaching of the Bible?  That is the main question that we should ask ourselves when deciding on the music we use.

We welcome questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
