Just last night, my dad and I watched a movie about Hillsong United. The thing I loved about this movie is that it reminded me of why I love contemporary Christian music. It showed how those songs can help heal and transform people. Throughout the movie, I was able to recognize some of the songs. I have loved contemporary Christian music for a long time now and the love truly began at an Episcopalian Conference Center called Kanuga. Kanuga was the place where I truly let God enter my life and where I have gotten to truly know him.
Here’s why I love Christian music. I strongly connect to it and it develops my spirituality so well. Whenever I sing to those songs, I can feel my Holy Sprit fill up. At the Gathering, my school’s student-led worship service, you can feel the energy from everyone in the room. Those songs remind me of who God is and reminds me of the importance in Him in my life. I connect so well so contemporary Christian music.
Out of all genres of music, I can fully connect to both musicals and contemporary Christian music and without any of them, I wouldn’t have discovered the power of music. No other genre makes me connect as well. I feel like with other genres of music, all I do is listen to them. But when I listen to the two main genres that I love, my connections are so much stronger and I feel like I am not just listening to music.
