Matthew 7:7 tells us “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Have you ever prayed relentlessly with this verse in mind, only to grow angry and bitter when God didn’t give you the desired outcome? Some days you will find it hard to get out of bed, not because of how comfortable you are, but instead because life simply doesn’t make sense and you don’t know what you’re going to do. Perhaps it’s a medical issue, the loss of a job, or something even worse. Whatever has left you in this confusing place, it’s probably also affecting your relationship with God. You need to fight the temptation to give up on God even if that sounds impossible.

Depending on the size of the room, the music being played, the audience, and several other factors, you could be in for a soulful time of reflection or a wild and crazy party. Breaking things down even further, there are also differences between Christian concerts and secular music events featuring popular bands. Before we compare and contrast these differences, we want to first say there is nothing wrong with enjoying a little of both. Not every concert a Christian attends has to be one where prayer and worship of God are routine. Just like movies or books, your entertainment can be something of a healthy balance.
