Monday’s Music Moves Me
The theme this week is your choice, so I am going to take this opportunity to share music that is close to my heart and soul, gospel/inspirational music. The very purpose of gospel music is to honor the God of all creation and rejoice that heaven is the eternal destination of believers.
The Bible gives us the history of mankind. Genesis tells us where we came from and Revelation tells us where we are going. The truth is man has a soul and that soul will spend eternity somewhere. All of us are going to step into eternity some day and the only question is, “Are we prepared to step into the everlasting and where will we spend eternity.” Scripture tells us that those who refuse to believe that Christ is the only Son of God and will not accept Him as Savior will spend eternity in a place called hell. Those who acknowledge that Christ is the Savior, repent of their sinful behavior, and seek His forgiveness will depart this life and step into eternity to a place specially prepared for them by Christ Himself. In the third verse of the fourteenth chapter of the book of John, Christ tells the disciples, “…I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” A few verses later Christ declares, “I am the way, the truth and the life, and no man comes to the Father except through Me.” So by the mouth of the Savior Himself, there is only one way to heaven, and that is the truth. The unique thing about the truth is that it does not require us to believe something in order for it to be true. The truth is the truth, whether we believe it or not. God has provided us with the gift of eternal life and salvation through Jesus Christ and the choice is ours to accept that gift and spend eternity with the Creator and the promise that we will never shed another tear! Okay, I’m through preachin’ now. I’m going to let the most uplifting music in the world take it from here. Have a blessed week.
