After being in this defences for several time of life I have move to my own conclusions as to what this label system and is all around. First let me say that I presume quite a lot of religious musicians build the slip of victimisation this as a means calm their own requirements. A stipulation to be up front, to perform, to spectacle off their rhythmic talent etc. Or as lately a job. You cognize how you can be going on for your 9 to 5 place. Get it done, get out. But woman a Christian is all astir sacrificing self. "The sacrifices of God are a shattered spirit: a dissolved and a penitent heart, O God, yard wilt not hate." Psalm 51:17 KJV.
You may get salaried. You belike do. You may do healed. You belike do (hopefully), but this isn't more or less you or around your paycheck. This is more or less what you can do to enlighten Christ.
Let's watch at some scripture about this. In the Bible we are commanded to "Sing unto him a new song; performance ably near a shattering roar." Psalm 33:3 KJV. In preliminary Samuel we see what a instrumentalist can do for a man sorrowful. "Let our lord now edict thy servants, which are earlier thee, to seek out a man, who is a clever actress on an harp: and it shall come to pass, once the evil-minded spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall dramatic work with his hand, and thousand shalt be okay." 1 Samuel 16:16, KJV. You see as a musician, a place of worship musician, a Christian musician, your job is to member of the clergy. And in writ to be able to minister effectively your bosom inevitably to be in the permission lodge. Not on "Man intermission until folks perceive these far out chords I've been jamming on!" but more like, "Praise the Lord. He is model. Lord I praise You." I don't cognise nearly you but I would to some extent hear, "Thank you sister, that mantra really ministered to my hurting intuition this antemeridian (evening, day)." Than going on for how precooled I sounded up near on the pianissimo with that new chord patterned advance. I'm not language I don't use chord progressions but I'm dictum maintain the musical performance in view.

Try playing as unto the Lord once. Not for the Lord same you have yet different reverent viewers but as a channel of admiration. In the same way you help your safekeeping and offering praise, help your fingers and bestow the praise crosstown the piano, guitar strings, or any pleasing means you gambol.
Okay so a christian church musician, in my words, is a retainer of the Lord who offers acclamation through the musical means sometimes in accompaniment to the inhabitants. You (we) are in truth not necessary and the race can static sing the praises of and deify the Lord lacking you. Sometimes, or many modern world if you are desire counsel to your playing, the Lord can and will use you to parson unto several of His faithful.
Praise the Lord!
