The Purpose of Gospel Music

Music does and always has played an important part in people’s lives. People have always used something to create music, as a means of entertainment. Music is not only an entertainment but also a way for people to relax and motivate and even worship.

Some think music and other forms of art are made for nothing but participating in it, whatever the motivation. Music can help you relax and concentrate and loud music can help raise the energy level when you are tired or to help set a particular state of mind such as meditation or worship..

Gospel music is set apart from other Christian music because of its message. Other music may simply be praising God, but this music praises God while telling about what he’s done.

Gospel music is certainly music with a purpose. It praises God and preaches the Gospel. Psalms 150 lists every major type of musical instrument and ends with, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord.” Gospel music gives every instrument and every voice the medium to obey that command. – “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord

Gospels are songs that talk about what the Lord has done in a person’s life. It may be about being saved, or how the Lord has blessed them, or about their trials and how the Lord helped them through it all. Gospel songs usually are very upbeat and/or are associated with the southern sounds of music.

The bottom line is that the purpose of this music is, at least tri-fold. It is to uplift and encourage the Body of Christ; preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music with the hope of bringing salvation to non-believers; and entertain all people with positive messages and values.
