Join us in the Ferocious Faith Vibes listening room. Hear music that is uplifting and soothing to the soul! We are not selling any music products and do not own the rights to any music shared on this site.
The Real Ferocious Faith Vibes is not just about music but the Christian life. I quickly move away from music or speech that is unwholesome. I do not want to grieve or dishonor the Holy Spirit by engaging in conversation or listening to music I know is unacceptable. The Bible best describes the Ferocious Faith Vibes in Ephesians 5:15-20!
Consistency in the Christian Life
Ephesians 15 Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk—not as unwise people but as wise— 16 making the most of the time,[d] because the days are evil. 17 So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless living, but be filled by the Spirit: 19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music with your heart to the Lord, 20 giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another in the fear of Christ.
So, what does the Bible say about music, and is it essential to Believers today? I found this article to help us understand music is vital to Christian living, and I would like to share it with you.
What does the Bible say about music? The brief answer is:
Music is an inherent part of every society. The unearthly sounds of throat-singing in Mongolia and Siberia are as important to their cultures as Bach is to European cultures or drum-driven song and dance are to Native American cultures. Since music is such an important part of life, it should not be surprising that the Bible says much about it; in fact, the longest book in the Bible is its song book—Psalms.
Psalms account for over 7 percent of the Old Testament. In addition to the Psalms are other song- and poetry-focused books such as Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, and others. In the New Testament, we have song lyrics recorded in Revelation 5, 7, and 15; the mention of Jesus and the disciples singing in Matthew 26:30; and the example of the apostles’ singing in Acts 16:25. Many people also consider Mary’s Magnificat in Luke 1:46–55 and the angels’ announcement in Luke 2:14 to be songs. The church is commanded to communicate with each other “with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19).
Based on the number of Scriptures mentioned in this article, the Bible has much to say about music. Here is another interesting point to highlight from this article:
What does the Bible say about music?
Music in the Bible - Conclusion:
Both the Old and New Testaments address music and strongly support its use in worship. The extensive anthology of actual songs found in the Old Testament indicates the importance and value God places on creative musical expression. Music’s use in worship in the church today is valuable and can honor God in a special way. Music is a communication tool. There are no New Testament instructions on the type of instruments to be used (or not used), and no particular “style” of music is recommended or forbidden. The simple command is to sing “to God with gratitude in your hearts” (Colossians 3:16).
