I’ve been struggling with specific “worship” resources this week because, as Justin taught, worship encompasses many of the Disciplines we’ve already covered. So today you’ll be linked to several albums that have launched my heart into worship of God. Music that holds God up high, placing him where he should be so that our worship flows directly from him in all his majesty.
Stephen Miller // Behold - I was browsing Instagram this week and a respected pastor I follow posted great things about Stephen Miller’s new album so I checked it out. Each song contains such wonderful lyrics in direct worship to God that I had to place this at number 1. I don’t often listen to worship music, but this one is definitely worth checking out.
Beautiful Eulogy // Worthy - I mean, the title of Beautiful Eulogy’s new album says it all. I’m not great at genres, but this chill hip hop-esque album will cause deep reflection in your heart, stirring it toward vertical worship of God. It’s also free to download, or pay to support their efforts.
Shai Linne // The Attributes of God - In a similar vein as Beautiful Eulogy, Shai Linne offers a lyrical examination of the attributes of God, who God is and what that means. I can’t think of anything better to focus on for worshiping God than on him and who he is. So check this album out. We also still have some copies available of Shai Linne’s new album Still Jesus available at church for you to have as well.
The Saving // Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God - This one is for any metalheads like me. The Saving is a solo project by some guy in Florida, but his music and lyrics are so powerful. Each album focuses on a topic or concept and runs with it. This is his most recent release and it focuses on our relationship to God and is based on that famous sermon by Jonathan Edwards of the same name.
I’d love to hear from you what things help you focus on God in worship! Let us know in the comments if you have anything to add.
