Approving Things Excellent (Phil 1.9-11)

The standard we want to reach in our music is the standard of God’s glorious excellence, the worth of His gospel, the beauty of grace and the perfection of His Son.

Proposition: Christian musical standards should be set by seeking that which most closely reaches the standard of true beauty: the image of God, rather than that which is free of the taint of corruption.

We want our music to go beyond the level of merely acceptable. We want our music to be the best it can possibly be. We want it to be excellent for the glory of our Great God.
