Humble Servant

August 10, 2011

No one disputes the importance of music in the Christian life and the life of the church. In fact, Christians sing and play better than any other people of faith.  From the very beginning of God’s people, singing and playing music has been an indispensable way of expressing our worship and thanksgiving to God.  Subsequently, God has gifted many people with the ability to serve us in singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.  One such person is our good friend and brother in Christ, Ed Pugh.

When it comes to serving God’s people in worship, the most important trait is humility.  Singing and playing (like everything else) is for the purpose of making much of Christ and not the musician.  No matter how well someone sings or plays, if the praise goes to the musician and not the Maker, the singing and playing is in vain. With this always in mind, I continue to be thankful for those who lead us into the presence of God and then get out-of-the-way so we can actually see and make much of Christ.  Ed Pugh is one such servant.

Here is a video of Ed playing what he refers to as psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Knowing Ed’s heart for Christ and the truth of the gospel makes this music all the more worth listening to.  I know he would want us to make much of Christ and not him.  Thanks Ed.
