Christian Music

“The main direction of our music is vertical (man to God) with the audience of our music being God Himself….True Christian music has something behind it that the world will never know: the power of the Holy Spirit. Whenever we try to substitute the Holy Spirit’s power with special effects, we may impress a crowd, but in the spiritual realm we have failed miserably.”

Tim Fisher, “Our Greatest Threat” in “Church Music Dynamics” November/December 1995, Sacred Music Services (Greenville, SC: Sacred Music Services), Vol. 5, No. 6, p 1, 3.

A New Year Commitment

The first of the year is a great time to commit yourself to faithful Bible reading and study. There are many Bible reading schedules to choose from. The simplest is to read three chapters every weekday and five on weekend days. Robert Murray M‘Cheyne in December 1842 published a schedule of about four chapters a day, two for family reading and two for private or ‘secret’ devotional reading.

Here is a verse to put words to that commitment. It sings well to the tune of “I Am Resolved“.

I am resolved to read through the Bible,
Living each day therein;
Learning the truth God has for me daily,
Keeping my heart from sin.

I will read it daily,
Loving to learn God’s will;
Let it satisfy me,
With it my spirit fill.
