(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.76)

Hymns and Spiritual Formation

Do people want to live better lives?

Yes, we do!

Do people want to live closer to God?

Yes, we do!

Do people want help praying?

Yes, we do!

In the press of daily living, it’s difficult to stay on focus. It’s difficult to keep our eyes on our

heavenly Father, to remember His presence, His power, His goodness, and His unfailing

promises. It’s hard to think, feel, and be the persons we need to be.

Singing hymns can help. They plant truth in our minds, hearts, and imaginations. They immerse

us in the realities of God and His faithfulness, of Jesus Christ and His life within us, of the Holy

Spirit and His empowering, guiding presence. Hymns help us embrace the truth physically,

mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The truths we sing weave themselves into our thoughts,

feelings, and perspectives.

Remember, it is vital that we sing the hymns, not just listen to them. If you want to be

entertained, listen. If you want to be transformed, sing! (See The Value of Singing, p.12.)
