If you ask kids today what they’re listening to, you’ll hear about singers like Ariana Grande and bands like Imagine Dragons. Christian music, on the other hand, is sometimes frowned upon by younger listeners. While we can’t be surprised by non-Christian kids’ lack of interest in the genre, there’s plenty for Christian kids to love about music that praises the Lord. Instead of dismissing Christian music as lame church stuff, think about all the ways in which we can engage with it. We believe Christian music has a rightful claim to your listening time.

When you browse the hit songs of pop culture these days, you may be shocked to find the number of tracks that are labeled “explicit” and glorify a hedonistic lifestyle. It’s not anything new for secular music to blast a narrative that contradicts the truth of the Bible, but that doesn’t make the stumbling blocks any less dangerous for the upcoming generation. We live in a great time for finding new Christian music for teens. Whether your preference is pop, rap, or worship, you can find something God-honoring that you enjoy.

Keep it casual. Play it cool. We have so many different phrases for not taking things very seriously. This isn’t just a phenomenon for Christian teenagers, though. The world today has taught us to not get too invested in anything. The problem is that that leaves us as jacks of all trades and masters of none. So if you’re someone who enjoys playing music (and maybe even creating a little of your own), we think it’s time for you to get serious about it. Not because we want to suck the joy out of the process, but because you should give something you love your full effort.
