About Kairos Songs

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

This blog sets out my meditations based on songs that I have written. I share these thoughts because  first and foremost I felt I needed to internalize the message contained in each song before I shared the songs with the world.

Colossians 3:16 points out the following:

  • As we teach and admonish one another with psalm, hymns and songs that come from the Spirit then Jesus Christ’s message dwells in us richly;
  • We are to use songs as a teaching medium
  • Using songs as teaching tool, is wisdom, probably because it’s easier to memorize a song,  and when we add music, the message in the song becomes even more impactful
  • We are to sing with gratitude in our hearts.

The Greek word for teach in this passage is didaskontes from didasko – to teach (literally, “cause to learn”); instruct, impart knowledge (disseminate information).[1]

The word for admonish is nounethountes from nouthetéō (“admonish through instruction”), to  appeal to the mind, supplying doctrinal and spiritual substance (content). This “exerts positive pressure” on someone’s logic (reasoning), i.e. urging them to choose (turn to) God’s best. [2]

I can testify that these songs have helped keep me grounded in the truth. They have been a source of comfort, peace, reassurance and, joy.  They have, just as Col 3:16 says, caused my heart to be filled with gratitude to a God who is so personal and real that He speaks to us in a variety of ways. And music is one of the most powerful and convicting of those ways.
