Sing the New Song

Strength to Strength welcomed John D. Martin to share about music and what it means to “Sing the New Song.”

In the first part of the discussion, John D. spoke about the importance of music and what it accomplishes in the life of the Christian.

In the second part of the discussion, he covered more practical aspects of what our music should be like, using Revelation 5:9 as a model for the music of the redeemed:

And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

Revelation 5:9 NKJV

An interactive question-and-answer period follows.

John D. Martin is an itinerant Bible teacher with interests in a diversity of Christian topics including church history, economics, music, and church as community. He compiled the hymnbook Hymns of the Church.

One of John’s passions is to help people see that the main theme of Scripture is not the “scarlet thread” of Jesus’ atonement, but rather the Kingdom of God; our salvation is a means to and end, the end being the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom is intended to demonstrate the excellence of God’s character and his manifold wisdom, and this theme runs through the entire Bible.

He lives in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania and is a part of Shippensburg Christian Fellowship.
