“The psalmist tells us that God inhabits the praises of his people (Ps. 22:3 KJV). Accordingly, I believe that music opens people’s hearts to hear from him. As God indwells the praises of his people, they are drawn into his presence. Their defenses are lowered. Their hearts attune to his.
The importance of well-planned, intentional music in a worship service can’t be underestimated; it is essential to helping your people connect with God and hear what he wants to say to them.”
– Nelson Searcy and Jason Hatley
