THE MINISTRY OF SONG – Dr. Paul Enenche

INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MINISTERS’ CONFERENCE 2021 – DAY 2 MORNING – THURSDAY, 29TH JULY 2021
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): 1 CHRONICLES 6:31

There are many Christian musicians or musicians that are Christians but there are very few ministers of song
We have a generation that don’t know the difference between a minister of songs and a Christian musician

THINGS TO NOTE:

  1. The music ministry is not a matter of stardom, it is a matter of service.
    Nobody is designed to struggle for popularity or stardom because of music ministry
  2. The music ministry is not a matter of entertainment, it is a matter of assignment – ‘impartainment’
  3. The music ministry is not a matter of making a living, but a matter of making a difference
    Even though it is what you do for a living, making a living is not the focus
    It is not a matter of income but of impact; impact will always attract income
  4. The music ministry is not just an appeal to the flesh of man but an appeal to the soul and spirit of man
    Our ultimate objective is the excitement of the spirit and the soul
  5. The music ministry is not designed for temporal impact, it is designed for eternal impact on lives
    Anything we do that stops on the earth here was almost a waste of life

WHO IS THE MINISTER OF SONG?

  1. He/she is a servant in the Kingdom assignment of worship, praise or songs
  2. He/she is the one who is addicted to the service of songs
  3. He/she is the one who is on standby for errands in the assignment of songs
    The first consideration of a minister of songs is not how much will come to them but that they are on the errand of songs
  4. He/she is the one whose ears are opened to instructions
  5. He/she is one who is marked with humility and servanthood

WHAT IS THE TARGET OF THE MINISTRY OF SONG?

  1. To create passion and hunger for God in the earth (Ps. 42:1-2; 63:1-2)
    One of the things that the devil has successfully tried to do is to make people satisfied without God
    A major assignment of the ministry of song is to counter that satisfaction and create a hunger and passion in the hearts of the people for God
    Something within the people should begin to hunger and seek for God because you ministered
    God wants to bring the world to the knowledge of Himself
    Be it praise or worship, it must carry something that will pull the heart to God
  2. To create and multiply worship as well as worshippers in the earth (Ps. 42:7; Num. 21:17; 1Sam. 10:5-6; Isa. 43:21; 1Pet. 2:9)
    Worshippers produce worshippers
    When you sing to the wells in the hearts of people, it springs up
    When you minister as a minister of songs, the outcome of that is not necessarily the rise of singers but the rise of worshippers
    Singers are a matter of talent but worshippers are a matter of unction
    There are many prayer warriors but few worship winners
    God is looking for an explosion and escalation of worship
  3. To unleash the manifest Presence of God in the earth (Hab. 2:14; Num. 14:21; 2Chron. 5:13-14; 1Cor. 2:9-10; Ps. 22:3; 89:15)
    If the glory remains only in the temple then we have failed God in our generation

PRAYERS
Father, give us a dimension of glory that will take over territories, nations and communities; give us a dimension of glory that will take over our land in revival, in Jesus’ Name.

Father, let everything about my life worship You, in Jesus’ Name. – Isa. 43:21
