Paul Wilbur: Saved by a Worship Love Song to Jesus

Music and sound is powerful, but it's a tool and it's not a goal for me any longer.

Once in a while when you tell a story, even if that story is decades old, the emotions you experienced come rushing back and it’s as if you’re right there reliving that experience again. In this episode our guest, Paul Wilbur, tells a beautiful story about when he met “Yeshua, Jesus” for the first time and then dedicated his life and music to “knowing Him and making Him known.”

Paul’s inspiring story begs the question in all of us; Was there a moment when you knew God was calling you to use your gifting for His purposes?

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23–24 (ESV)
