Music Sermons

I recently listened to two great sermons from Ambassador Baptist College...which just happens to be my alma mater. :) The preacher was Tim doubt you recognize the name! If you don't, he is a singer who has recorded several CD's with his wife or Mac Lynch. He is also part of the SMS mens choir, who also has several recordings.

These two messages, one entitled "A New Song" and one entitled "Why Do I Sing" were both a huge encouragement and challenge to me as a musician! He really explored in detail why we as Christians have the musical standards we do, and how to use our music to honor and glorify God. Both of these areas should be vitally important to the Christian musician!

I would challenge each of you to head over to the ABC sermon page and listen to these messages yourself. (Scroll down on the page until you see those two messages) Listen with a paper and pen in hand, an open Bible, and an open heart to challenge you. Then please come back here and let me know what you thought!


  1. Nicole- Ok, so I haven't watched these yet ;)...
    but I wanted to comment on the fact that I am looking forward to watching them. My husband and I try to listen to a podcast or sermon every Saturday morning together- it's always a great start to the weekend- and I think I'll surprise him this week with one of these. Don't worry- I'll be back to post my thoughts after we listen. :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. You won't be disappointed, I'm sure! I would heartily recommend any of the sermons from ABC, and would love to suggest my favs if you ever need something to listen to! I think that is a really neat practice for you and your husband. Great idea!

  3. Hi Nicole- Sorry it's taken me so long to respond! I thoroughly enjoyed "Why Do I Sing?" It was a very thought-provoking sermon challenging both musicians and non-musicians alike. Tim has a great sense of humor as well! I can't wait to check out more of the sermons from this page- thanks so much for sharing :)

  4. You are welcome! I am glad it was a blessing. Have you heard Tim Fisher sing? His singing is almost as good as his preaching, lol :)
