Worldly Music In The Church
People talk about church music, sanctified music, worldly music, they give
it all types of terms and I like to talk about everything was created for
the glory of God.
Everything was created for the glory of God and so people like Elvis
Presley and Michael Jackson and James Brown and people did might exploits
on the music arena. Of course, they made big money of off it. It was
secular, we would call it, however, everything was still created for the
glory of God. In all these anointings and gifts and talents were really to
be for the glory of God, but people didn’t use if to glorify God.
So, I like to say what we’re supposed to do and what I like doing is
sanctify that stuff and it’s OK. People come to your church and they’ll
say well, it wasn’t like church music because it had the Mo-town sound or a
60s or 70s R&B groove to it. And that’s OK because were the church and
when we play music it is church music. We’re the church and what clothes
we wear are church clothes. And we’re the church and what songs we sing
are church songs. And see we are the church, and what we’re doing is
taking that music and sanctify it anyway. Do what it was supposed to do
anyway, glorify God.
Change the lyrics. It’s all right if the beat is not that sanctified what
we call a holiness shuffle beat and all those types of things. It can,
it’s all right if it’s sounding like the Stylistics and the Delphonics and
the Temptations and Smoky Robinson. That was a cool groove.
Just think, we take that music and sanctity it to the glory of God. Now
God is pleased. And not only that, he sanctified us, and we were retched,
miserable and undone and he took us and sanctified us. And so everything
is to be sanctified. Our food is blessed and sanctified. Our children are
sanctified and that’s what it’s all about. Set apart for sacred use. And
so that’s how I like to do in my church. Look, excuse me, we’ll take some
of that old school music and we’ll flip those lyrics around and we’ll
glorify God because it’s all about the heart. And if your heart is into
it, you can worship, the power of God will fall. People will get saved,
healed and delivered simply because it’s sanctifies and glorifies God and
not only that it got their attention. It wasn’t so stiff and religious and
stuffy. It was free and it was liberating. It just helped them to see
that, ‘Woah, God does love me. It doesn’t matter.’
So, just sanctify your music and I’d like to encourage you, click on the
links that we have available here for you. It’s just a couple of old
grooves that we sanctified glorifying God. It’s a powerful anointing
falling into place. So, enjoy that. And again take everything and
sanctify to the glory of God. That’s what it was all created for.
