A new me – new music

I like to watch American Idol. We’ve been watching it for years, but I realize I don’t know any of the songs the contestants sing. Now if they sing something from the 50’s, 60’s, or 70’s I can recognize it.
But when a contestant says that he/she is going to sing Bruno Mars, Adele, or even Kelly Clarkson – I don’t know the song.
That’s because I don’t listen to that particular genre of music.

When I accepted Jesus as my Savior it changed my musical taste. Face it, they didn’t sing ZZ Top or Credence in church. I got hooked on Southern Gospel music. The Happy Goodman’s, the old Chuck Wagon Gang, the Inspiration’s, and the Nelon’s all took the place of Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull.

Slowly I developed a crush for more contemporary Christian music.

Now although I work for a Christian music radio station, most of this transformation in me took place before I began working there.
I had no choice to change.
It is written “He has put a new song in my mouth!” Ps 40:3

And there’s more!

Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. Ps 96:1-2

It’s hard to proclaim the good news of His salvation if you’re humming a secular song.

Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; Ps 98:1

I don’t know Bruno or Adele songs because they have not done marvelous things for me!

Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, Ps 149:5-6

If you know Jesus as Savior I want to encourage you to listen to Christian music.
There are many Christian stations across the world but I will invite you to listen to my station, which you can listen to on-line and on-air. www.kswp.org

And if you like Christian teaching and talk programs try www.kavx.org.

Either will change your life.

One thought on “A new me – new music

  1. I always tell people when they are looking for a Church in a new town, to find the Christian Radio and see which Churches support it. Then go from there. I was a rock n roll fan and then worked in Country and Western radio, *now you can tell I am old too* Like you, I no longer listened to modern rock music. I never have been a fan of Country music, for the most part.
