I loved this quote from Creature of the Word by Matt Chandler, Eric Geiger, and Josh Patterson:
“As you consider selecting songs for your worship services, consider them in light of the truth of the gospel. Imagine the songs as teachers--because they are! If your people could understand your doctrine only through the music you sing, what would they know about God and His pursuit of us? If your people could understand your church's beliefs only through the music, what would they know?”We may not all be worship leaders, but we can and do choose what songs we fill our lives with on a daily basis. We can use music to "preach" the gospel to ourselves each and every day, to remind ourselves of great truths. Have you thought about music like that?! Perhaps you should!
I'm choosing seven songs to "represent" the doctrines I hold dear. I'd love to know what YOUR choices would be!
