Signs of the Spirit : Christians in the charts

Bob Kauflin - can Christian musicians play secular music for God's glory:
A Christian’s success in the general marketplace is no sign one way or the other that the kingdom is advancing or the Gospel is being proclaimed. A chart-topper isn’t necessarily a sign of God’s blessing. It might be the result of savvy marketing or great musicianship.
An interesting application of Edwards 'religious affections' logic on what proves nothing about the nature of Spiritual life, and what proves everything. Plenty to think about in terms of music to the glory of God - for example, what does it look like for my wife to make music to the glory of God in her classroom at school?
