Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 4

TEXT IN SINGING | Pt. 2 Continuing from Day 3, one more thing emerges for our consideration in our songs. If we think back to the words of Colossians 3:16, our singing is actually supposed to “teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, through singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.” Dave Yauk in The Tempo of Discipleship: The Rudiments and Rhythms to Shaping Followers of Christ helps us devise some quick learning...

Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 3

TEXT IN SINGING  I hope we can all agree that songs are as important as the sermons from our teachers in telling the total story line of God. Our songs are important in total scope in how they develop a broader mentality, but this also does not negate the fact that songs are also important in textual specifics.  Those who write lyrics, or share them with others, are responsible for the words they put...

Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 2

TOTAL SINGING  One of my Professors in college once said that most Christians are struggling deeply with their faith because they believe in a “canon within a Canon.” He shared this when talking about the 66-book Canon (or standard) of Scripture. What he meant is that most people cherry-pick verses from the Scriptures in whatever manner they like, and assemble the truths (apart from their context) into beautiful worldview bokeh...

Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 1

Day 1 | FOR THE MIND, THE BODY & THE SOUL Songs are important to us! They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride, but the world is making every effort to perpetually define the style, the songs and the artists that are appropriate for the training of the human mind, body and soul. We must realize that God created singing, and thus as its grand architect, he knows completely its purpose and appropriate...

Honoring Christ In Our Liturgy-Day 10

Today, you’ve got one last lengthy reading assignment to do. You’re going to read the whole book of Revelation straight through. Well, at least from Chapter 4 to 22. Consider how John structures the whole apocalyptic letter. Revelation has long been understood as a difficult book to understand as it deals with the End Times through the lens of very difficult imagery. However, I would suggest that the study of eschatology (the end...
