A song is the music of the heart. The heartfelt songs have nothing to do with the physical output through the voice box. Those with an inward song to sing, but never make it to the top of the music charts, may be those with the most beautiful spirit. Words and poems can be set to music to sing with voices, but the most precious song flows through the melody of the spirit.
Different songs come through various compositions of the spiritual fruit. A ballad may flow from a meek and gentle feeling of peace. I like “All for love” by Bryan Adams as a ballad. For love, goodwill, and kindness I like the song, “We Are The World.” For faith, joy, and goodness I like “All My Hope” by Crowder. For perseverance, self-control, and patience I like “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus. Here’s the whole point of this blog; whatever type of music you listen to, there will be a certain mix of the spiritual fruit interweaved into the words and music. What are the prominent fruit of the spirit in the music you listen to?
Wherever the spiritual fruit are, there is Christ. God enriches our spirit through music. Enjoy your music of every type and let Christ in you be the judge of your listening selection. I really enjoy listening to “Ice, Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice, know why?
