Gospel music brings souls to God not to entertain part 1

Haven looking at these definitions we can see that there is no room for us to entertain as our name implies as Gospel musician, we are the preacher of the word of God through music and the main purpose of the gospel is the coming of Christ, His death, His resurrection and His coming back the second time, and this is not to entertain but to inform.

Our songs are to conveying information to the people, which information? Information of the love of God, His righteousness, His faithfulness, His justice, His holiness, His wondrous did, His power, His Glory, His splendor, His majesty, and His ability to do all things, it is necessary for our songs to speak and communicate the word of God to people. Our songs are not for entertainment but for communication, even though entertainment is a basic part of music, entertainment is a natural part of music, you cannot remove entertainment from music, as I said in my definition that music is the combination of sound that are pleasant to the ear, the word pleasant is actually what entertainment is.

In the Christian world the entertainment aspect is no longer focus on YOU the performer of the music but it now becomes the combination of sound that are pleasant to God, because He is your first audience. God is your first audience, because He is the one that we seek to please, so the totality of our music should be pleasing to him “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer”. Ps 19:14 NIV also see Ps 104:34, Heb 13:21

We are not given the ministry of entertaining but we are given the ministry of soul winning because we preach the gospel through our music, the music is the energy and is the gift given to the musician to carry the message of peace, joy, healing, deliverance, hope and salvation to the world, Jesus said “Go yee into the world and preach the gospel” matt 28:19, Jesus did not said Go yee into the world and entertain them but to preach the gospel , the fastest way of winning a soul into the kingdom of God is through music , its goes farther than what you can expect.
