To every work of God there is a reward from God, God want every ministers to make a spiritual difference and every spiritual difference you make there is a reward for you and not to every spiritual work alone also but every work you do here on earth, because God will bring every work into judgment and with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil. (Eccle 12:14).
The world should not tell or dictate to us what to sing but the Holy Spirit, because you will be rewarded here on earth and on the last day also He will reward us according to our works, not according to our dance or our skill or whom we entertained.
Our greatest goals of whatever you are doing is Heaven, if your song raise the dead and you don’t have Him in your heart you are going nowhere and there is no reward for you (Matt 7:21-23), if you are an entertainer in your gospel music ministry, I want you to know that you don’t have Him because if you have Him He will not allow you to entertain for there is nothing He want to do with entertaining.
Our lives are filled with many choices of how to spend our time, energy, resources and whether to entertain or to minister in gospel music, some life invest their time in education, in spiritual things or in entertainment and you have to know again that you will be accounted for your choice. “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ”. (Colossians 3:23-24)
“For the son of man shall come in the glory of His father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works”, (matt 16:27)
*You will be rewarded of the life you lived.
*For the souls you won for Him.
*You will be rewarded of the family and lives you transform through your song.
*You will be rewarded for the glory that you have brought to Him not to yourself.
And also Rev 22:12 says “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be”, no reward for any gospel musician who does not have Christ and walk in His ways, I don’t want to know the denomination you belong to or how anointed you say you are because our perfect example is Christ Himself. Yes, you are looking for money even if you have the money, what about your soul? Christians are after packaging but your content is empty, is your soul rich in Christ are you really born again, is God recognizes you as His son and daughter, mark 8:36, Rev 3:17. God bless Shalom.
