You Gotta Make Your Own Kind Of Music!

(The Following Is An Excerpt From My Upcoming Book Release)

When it comes to worship, I believe that each of us has a unique expression that God desires, something that each of us alone can give Him. When you really think about this, it should create an excitement within you. You have something to give God that nobody else in all of history has been able to give Him: Your Song! Science has even discovered that each individuals DNA produces a unique pattern or song. Genetic music is generated by decoding and transcribing genetic information within a DNA sequence into a music signal having melody and harmony. Science is even now beginning to show us that we are uniquely created by a Creator with a purpose and expression within each of us that is specifically our own.

Recently, as I was seeking the Lord on these things, the Lord impressed upon my heart that He longs to hear the songs of His children. God desires to hear the individual expressions of each of His uniquely created children. I believe that these songs and expressions have been lost and continue to be lost in the midst of christian culture and church liturgy. History shows us that the unique worship of the christian has been under assault since Pentecost. Many early christians were persecuted and martyred for their faith in Christ. And, after christian persecution was widely ended in the early fourth century, the christians individual expression of worship was again suffocated by the ordinance of a controlling church clergy accompanied by a restrictive liturgy.

It is clear in scripture that Jesus longs to hear the song of His beloved bride. Like many scholars, I believe that the Song of Songs is an allegory that parallels Christ’s relationship to us, the bride. One of my favorite portions of scripture comes out of Song of Songs chapter 2. Burning with love, the lover beckons his beloved in verse 14, “Let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet and your face is beautiful.” God created us in his image and likeness. We are uniquely formed to love, just as our Maker loves. I believe Jesus continues to call out to each one of us, calling us out of our hiding places in order that we may release our unique song to Him.

I encourage you to re-claim your unique creativity today and release your sound to the Lord!

“Nobody can tell ya…There’s only one song worth singing…They may try and sell ya…Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you…But you’ve gotta make your own kind of music…Sing your own special song…Make your own kind of music…Even if nobody else sings along”
