Music


Why is it that everyone loves music? We all do. Everyone has had that one song that just makes them want to take on the day. Why is it that every time we listen to a song it stirs emotions in us that were not there before? I think that this is because we were created to worship. We have been made in such a way that our emotions have been tied to our being. We were made to enjoy life (John 10:10), and most of us enjoy music. God created music, singing and sound so that we could worship Him (Psalms 40:3). This is why, I believe, we are stirred so emotionally when we listen to music. God created music for us and created us to enjoy music so that worship would be a thing to enjoy! Music plucks the strings of our emotions. The longest book in the Bible is the book of Psalms which is filled with music. It is the book of music. Do you not think that God values our worship?! We were made to enjoy music and to worship God (Psalms 100:2) through our enjoyment of music.

*- Music is not the only way to worship, however, it is one of the big ways to worship.

About Hudson

I live in Indiana. I enjoyed playing soccer all four years of high school. I co-captained and won the MVP award my senior year. I also have created many film projects, the most extensive of which won a film festival award for Best Cinematography during my senior year. It is a 10-minute short film called Café Encounter and can be watched on YouTube. I have been actively involved in my youth group and am a leader for a middle school boys group on Sunday mornings. I was also blessed to go on two mission trips to Belize and Ecuador respectively. Belize really awakened my faith in Christ and pushed me towards active obedience and love for God. Ecuador gave me a life-changing perspective on missionary work and has helped me to view myself as a missionary in my every day life, but especially with the intent of being a missionary to my work industry.
