Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Sad Faces Reflect the Mind

April 30th, 2013


Choir Note-Sunday, April 28, 2013

Sometimes I wonder how some people’s faces can be so sad.

I mean, we’re only saved, right? It’s only heaven. It’s only Jesus. I’m speaking facetiously now.

I often wonder if the message of the hymns we sing actually penetrates the mind. We are supposed to be “transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Biblically conforming to God’s mold for our lives involves a transformation of our minds from the old man (like Pastor was preaching about last Sunday) to the new man. This is often preached and taught as a concept related to preaching, or surrender, or your devotions.

Think about it related to music, though. How often does a song trigger a feeling or thought in your mind? And how often does a song pop into your head when you’re thinking about some thing? I don’t know about you, but it happens to me all the time. Our culture is engrained in music, and music conveys thoughts in an almost subconscious way.

How much does music affect you? What kinds of thoughts are you thinking throughout the week as you listen to music? Well I can usually tell who listens to wrong music and who listens to right music. How? People’s faces. Sad faces are windows to sad souls. If God wants us to keep our thoughts on Him and allow His types of thoughts to transform our minds, one of the best tools we have at our disposal is godly music. Let your mind be renewed and transformed by truth tonight.
