Monday’s Music Moves Me

There has been a lot going on around here and I will post images later. We took a 10 day road trip to the Texas Hill Country. This time of year parts of Texas burst into bloom with  blue bonnets, Indian paintbrush and other wild flowers so my wife and I took a road trip in which we drove around 1500 miles in ten days and just enjoyed the scenery. More about that in an upcoming post.

Okay this week is a “Your Choice” week and 4M so I have decided to do a belated Easter celebration post. In all of Christianity there are two major events that are identified with the faith, celebrating the birth of Christ at Christmas and celebrating His resurrection on Easter. Yesterday was Resurrection Sunday and I have selected a few songs that celebration the power of Christ to forgive sin, overcome the grave and prepare a place for all believers to spend eternity with the Savior.

Regardless of the world view that we may have of ourselves, scripture tells us that all of us have sinned and are unworthy of entering heaven. The penalty for our condition is death, that is an eternal separation from our Creator when we leave this life and step into eternity.  These truths are found in Romans 3:23 and Romans 6:23. 2 Peter 2:9 tells us that this situation is not God’s will, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” This is the very reason Christ was born, lived, was crucified and rose from the dead. Christ and Christ alone has provided us with the only alternative to an eternity of spiritual death. We must acknowledge our current situation, realize that we are in need of a Savior, confess that Christ is that Savior and ask Him to forgive us and provide us with the gift of salvation. Here are a few songs that celebrate that gift.

    Happy Easter to you too! I am more of a gospel girl as I like traditional gospel songs like “Elijah Rock” and “Wade in the Water.

    Thanks for the music though! Check out my 4M tomorrow!

    Great selection of music and I hope that you and your family had a blessed Easter.

    I talked with my wife about your music post last week and in particular Wipeout and I told her that she needed to choreo it in one of the fitness classes she teaches. Turns out she already does it for a cardio drumming class and she decided to have it in one of her water fitness classes so yesterday she had an arm workout to Wipeout during her AquaZoneBa classes at the gym we go to. It was a big hit.

    So now she is thinking about doing something with Louie Louie.

  4. You must stop featuring pictures of cute dogs at the beginning of your blog post…I will overdose from cute l Sigh! My choice of Christian music veers more towards Christian rock – Red, Thousand Foot Krutch, Skillet – and I realize the music I listen to doesn’t have explicit Christian lyrics. I value the music for a number of reasons, including the “clean” lyrics. In fact, I am using a Skillet song in my post tomorrow.

  5. Driller,

    ‘Are You Washed’ is an old-time gospel song sung in the church I grew up in. Hearing Randy Travis’ song put a smile on my face and warm spot in my heart. I sure do miss the old sounds from my childhood. Thank you for sharing these beautiful songs of worship with the 4M gang and because He lives so can we also live in heaven someday. Have a blessed week!
