“Newton had a ready pen, some imagination, deep feeling, a knowledge of Scripture, and an urgent motive.” What is your motivation as an artist?
This quote, found today on www.challies.com, prompted me to think and pray about what I do in music, particularly the music I write and arrange for the church. I think I have some imagination, but do I have a ready pen? What is the “urgent motive” I should have for exercising my pen and imagination? Is my knowledge of Scripture deep enough and heartfelt enough for it to saturate my creative offerings? Is my feeling deep and my burden great for others to know the beauty of God in Christ revealed?
