This is a question that many in the evangelical church are afraid of; but it is one that should be answered. Sanctification is a work of the Holy Spirit, not through manipulative emotional hype, but through the truth of God’s word (John 17:17). Jesus prayed that His church would be sanctified by the truth. Never did He pray that we be filled with simply emotional joy. What should bring joy to the believer in Christ is the truth of God’s word. I love music as much as the next person. But, I do not follow Jesus because of it. I was born again by the word of truth (James 1:18).
