Christian Music – What Goes Around Comes Around
The Bible says we reap what we sow. The Texas version of that verse is “What goes around comes around”.
I’ve played Christian music on the radio since the Reagan era. These songs greatly encourage people. For many, this format is a lifeline.
I’ve seen changes in everything from the medium, to the technology, and certainly the music. What hasn’t changed is the message.
I’ve always appreciated the work these lyrics do. They point people to Jesus, usually better than I do. I love that.
But recently there’s been a change I didn’t see coming. Something wondrous has happened of late. After three decades of promoting music designed to help transform lives…
Mine got transformed.
Oh, I gave my life to Jesus long ago. The music has always spoken to me. I firmly believe in the power of God through contemporary Christian music. But lately, and it’s hard to explain, it’s sounded… “different”. I not only appreciate it, and I not only believe in it.
I need it.
Life on earth can be exciting, but it can also be difficult. It can be so much fun, but it can be very complicated. Joyous, yet at times painful. It’s been during those difficult, complicated, and painful times that music about Jesus has created a newly discovered healing balm for my soul. Through Christian music, He has given me a renewed peace in times of storms, just like I’ve been telling everyone else for so long.
I’m grateful to God for a taste of His own medicine!
