You love your music.
It excites you, mends you, and inspires you.
Each song in iTunes is there on purpose, and each playlist is like a chapter from your life.
You turn to music when you’re in a melancholic mood, an adrenaline-soaked frenzy, and a passionate smolder. There are songs for every occasion, and playlists for every party. We couldn’t escape it if we wanted to. It’s behind every movie fight scene, in every store, and rumbling through every sports arena.
For some, music isn’t just life, it’s everything they wish life could be.
But regardless of how well the song tells our story or how it makes us feel, the Christian desires to give Christ the preeminence. This means we must test our music (as well as our movies, movements, methods, and menus) against the Lord’s beautifully sufficient and perfect standard.
God loves that which gives glory to His character and hates that which steals the glory due Him.
So, does God love or hate your music?
