Have You Ever Thought Of Christian Music And Biblical Counselling As Strategic Disciple-Making Opportunities?
Have you ever considered the important place that sound Christian music and Biblical counselling play in the formation, strengthening and maturing of Christian growth and discipleship? Both Christian music and Christian counselling can be God given opportunities for intentional disciple-making by unseating the hidden idols in our lives.
“People walk into a Sunday meeting with problems, specifically with the problem of idolatry, everything but God has become big in their lives, so I have this opportunity to point them to the greatness of God and explain who he is, and what he’s done in Jesus Christ.”
The ultimate goal of both Christian music and Christian counselling is worship. Both are about changing lives, and both are about capturing the hearts of men and women for the glory of Jesus Christ.
In part 1 of this interview, Bob Kauflin (Sovereign Grace Ministries) and David Powlison (CCEF: Christian Counselling and Educational Foundation) discuss the important link between pastoral counselling and music leadership.
