Make the Gospel the Soundtrack of Your Life

In his book Living the Cross Centered Life, C.J. Mahaney says (on page 131):

We humans are creatures of habit, aren’t we? And our habits reflect our true selves—we all build our daily lives around our priorities and passions. …
We make time for what we truly value. We build habits and routines around the things that really matter to us. This is an important principle to understand as we seek to build our lives around the gospel.
Do you want to live a cross centered life? A cross centered life is made up of cross centered days.

He then goes on to offer some advice on how to live cross centered days. One piece of advice he gives is: "Sing the Gospel. ...make the gospel the sound track of your day." 

If you are looking for some good gospel-saturated music to help you do just that, Sovereign Grace Music is a great place to go. I was recently reminded of how good an album "Come Weary Saints" is, and started teaching "As Long as You Are Glorified" to our kids. 

You can listen to samples here. ("As Long as You Are Glorified" is #3.)
