For this edition of Pastors’ Corner, we welcome Eric Bennett from Triumphant Quartet. Eric was formerly a Pastor of a Baptist Church, so we felt he was well qualified for this Pastors’ Corner series on “The Importance of Music in the Life of a Christian.” We trust you will enjoy his blog.
TD Jakes once said that anyone can praise the Lord, but true worship can only come from someone in whom God has done a supernatural work. (1 Peter 2:19,20: “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an Holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the wonderful acts of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.)
I agree with Brother Jakes. True heart-felt worship can only come from someone
who has experienced the hand of God working in their life; someone that God has delivered; someone that God has set free.
Joshua 4:19-24, tells the story of when the children of Israel set up 12 stones as a reminder of what God had done in their life. Most all lyrics in Southern Gospel music reflect on what God has done, either on the cross or something He’s done in our personal life. Whether it is Chris Allman’s, “I Could Never Praise Him Enough,” or Bill Gaither’s, “Jesus We Just Want To Thank You,” which if I were you, I would do myself a favor and look this song up on Youtube and watch the Cathedrals video of this. It’ll make you want to shout “Glory” as George would say! All these songs remind us of the goodness of God.
For me personally, I can sit and listen to songs like these and be reminded of all the things God has done for me. I am so very thankful for salvation, my wife, family, my GRANDKIDS, house, job, health, friends, and on and on. We all have so much to thank God for.
I think music either helps you focus on God or takes your focus off God. The importance of listening to Christian music is that it brings our attention to the One who gave us the breath that we breathe, another good reason to thank Him!
If we could get our mind off who is singing and get it on WHO is being sung about, we could experience true worship. Some of my best times with The Lord are not at church, concerts, or singings. Some of my best times with the Lord are driving the bus at 3am in morning or in my truck, listening to Christian music. God shows up and here we go!
Music will never take the place of Bible Study and Prayer time with God. But, it can truly keep our minds on Him. (Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.)
The world has so much noise today. Why wouldn’t a follower of Christ want to keep focused on Him all day long?! What better way to do that than listening to music that speaks of Him?
If you don’t already, I would suggest that you start listening to Christian music either on radio or by CD. Listen to the lyrics. Be reminded of all the things God has done in your life. Be reminded of “I once was lost but now I’m found, I once was blind but now I see.” If you do, I think you will experience true worship, you will keep focused on Him and I think your day will be so much brighter!

Daywind Music Group Hosts Greenbrier Quartet Festival 2015
Amongst the snow-topped mountains of White Sulphar Springs,West Virginia, Daywind Music Group held the first Greenbrier Quartet Festival at the extraordinary Greenbrier Resort. The event drew attendees from New Jersey to Florida and even a few Canadians. This endeavor marked an inaugural attempt by Scott Godsey and Daywind to host a multi-day event at a luxury resort. This geographic location is very different from the typical Southern Gospel venues that fans are accustomed to attending.
The Greenbrier welcomed each person with a smile and a large sweet tea! From that point forward, everything was presented on a whole new level. Even the seats in the concert hall were velvet covered while multiple stations in the room held pitchers of ice-chilled water.
Tribute Quartet, led by Gary Casto, started off the first night with their usual flair and energetic music. The lively group performed many charting songs and favorites, including, “Homesick Angel” and “Good News From Jerusalem,” featuring Josh Singletary. Read more »

We have had such a great response from our SGN Scoops’ friends that we are posting a double Prayer feature today. We hope that these comments touch your heart and increase your faith.
Remember, today’s prayer verse is: Today’s Bible verse: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16KJV)
Clayton Inman of the Triumphant Quartet, says that prayer is the key:
Prayer is, no doubt, key to everything that transpires in my daily life. Everyone gets busy. I know it doesn’t sound holy, but I do too. So much so, if I don’t begin my day in His word and prayer, everything becomes stressful and fleeting. I think this quote was attributed to Martin Luther, though it’s not found in his writings: “I have so much to do today that, if I don’t spend at least three hours in prayer, I would never get it all done.”
Jason Runnels of Jason Runnels Ministries shares one very direct answer to prayer:
When thinking about prayer, I could go on and on about the goodness of God and how He has answered prayers for me over and over. However, one prayer in particular comes not from me, but from my mom. This month of May marks the six year anniversary of her death.
Ten years prior to that, mom was diagnosed with cancer. When the doctors found the cancer she was told she had a year at best to live. Mom looked at the doctors and said, “Well Doc, you don’t have the final say in that! I am praying that God will give me ten years so I can see my grand babies grow up.” We began to pray along with her, and she claimed it in Jesus name.
When Mom passed away, she was two months shy of ten years! I promise God is real and He truly answers prayer!
My prayer closet is usually while I am driving at night. My family typically goes to bed or sits back on the couch watching tv, so I have alone time with God. But, I try to always start my day with prayer before I ever get started. I thank God for another day to serve Him and spend with my family.
What does prayer mean to you? Have you had some obvious answers to prayer, that could only have been God? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
