• The Influence of Music Devotional

    Psalm 101:1

    Our God is a God of order, so it is no surprise that the music we use to praise Him would reflect some kind of structure. We are not always conscious of the ordering principles in the art that we enjoy, but part of the reason that we see something as beautiful is that it conforms to some kind of proportional structure. Because we are made in the image of the God of order, we cannot help but appreciate order in every art form. View Resource

  • Music and Theology Devotional

    Psalm 101:1

  • Godly Resolve Devotional

    Psalm 101

    We must be reminded that the good news of Christ’s work is as necessary for us as we live the Christian life as it was when we were converted. Constant reflection on our Savior’s cross is the fuel that sustains our Spirit-animated gratitude, which is necessary if we will remember our need for God to sanctify us. As we resolve to serve the Lord, may we ever remember what Christ has done that we may be empowered by thankfulness to stand firm against sin. View Resource

  • The Music of the Covenant Devotional

    Psalm 101

    Reformed Christians are sometimes referred to as the “frozen chosen” on account of their demeanor in worship. Of course, everyone expresses joy differently, but our joy as Reformed Christians should be readily apparent in our worship no matter if its style is “traditional” or “contemporary.” Our tradition is blessed to have a rich understanding of God’s character, and so we should sing joyfully about Him when we get the opportunity to do so.
