Christian DJ Bio

I’m A Christian DJ –
So What Does That Mean?

1) I pray aloud at every event?
2) I’m a DJ who preaches?
3) I only play Christian music?
4) I only play at churches?
5) I have a halo?
6) I read Bible verses between songs?

Surprise! None of these things define a “Christian DJ”. (I bet you’re relieved!) I doubt you’ll find any of them that apply to any Christian DJ. (Especially #5!)

However, there are some external indications of a Christian DJ. For instance, we’re very familiar with – and comfortable playing – Christian music, unlike most non-Christian DJs. Some of us call ourselves Christian DJs, and some don’t – those are just DJs who are Christians.

The most noticeable external characteristic of Christian DJs, though, is this, we conduct ourselves, and our businesses, according to Christian principles. And the most obvious example of this is that we will never knowingly play music with vulgar or profane lyrics, or that has immoral subject matter, or that in any way brings dishonor to God.

But more importantly, a Christian DJ is one who has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

So, what does that mean, this personal relationship? Do we hang out with Jesus? Go fishing with Him? Take Him to football games? Call Him up just to chat?

Well, in a manner of speaking, yes.

You see, Jesus Christ is the son of God. The God. The all-powerful, all-knowing, infinite, supreme God of the universe. And, guess what! God wants to have a relationship with you. And not just any kind of relationship, either. He wants to be your father, your closest friend, your counselor. And He wants you to live with Him after you die!

Now, how does that work?

First, you’ve got to understand – God is perfect. And He can’t stand being around anything that isn’t. (Like you and me.) If that’s the case, how can we have a relationship with Him?

That’s where Jesus comes in. Being God’s son, He’s just like God perfect. No sin. (Sin is the things we’ve done that are contrary to God’s rules.) God sent Jesus into our world, to be one of us (but still without sin). As one of us, then, He could pay the penalty required by God for sin. “For the payment for sin is death.” (Rom. 8;28) And, being perfect (just like God), His payment was also perfect – and infinite. And complete He rose from the dead to prove it!

Since He had no sin of His own that needed paying for, His death could pay for ours instead. And since the payment was infinite, it can apply to everyone who’s ever lived or will ever live.

But there’s a condition. (There’s always a catch!) In order for this payment to apply to us, we must accept His terms. And His terms are … (are you ready for this?) … belief. Just believe (that is, trust, rely upon) that Jesus paid for your sin when He died. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes on Him will not perish, but shall have everlasting life.” (John 3;16)

Seems simple, doesn’t it? Well, it is, and it isn’t. You’ve got to give up the idea that you can be good enough on your own to earn God’s favor. In fact, you’ve got to realize that you could never be good enough by your own efforts, no matter what you do. (That’s why Jesus had to die to pay for sin – He’s the only one who could.) But no matter what you’ve done, good or bad, Jesus’ payment for your sin is available just by trusting in the fact that He did make the payment.

The Bible calls this “the gift of God” (Eph. 2;8). And, just like any other gift, it’s not really yours unless you take possession of it. That’s what you do when you believe. (If you do, tell Him!)

And that is what makes you a Christian, and gives you a relationship with Jesus.

Now, once you’ve done this, God is your father. And that sort-of makes Jesus your brother. (But it doesn’t make you like God; too bad!) Being in God’s family you now have certain privileges, like being able to talk to God (prayer) – and He really listens! He’ll also talk to you through His word, the Bible, whenever you read it.

And it also comes with certain responsibilities. Since God is your father, He expects you to obey Him – and He has ways of correcting you when you don’t. But like a good father, He always has your best interests at heart.

You’re now related to all other Christians, too, since we’re all in God’s family. And a really great thing to do is hang out with your fellow Christians. A good place to find them is in a Bible-believing church. (My personal favorite is Kennsington Church in Troy ,MI but there’re lots of others.)

Why am I a Christian DJ?

I accepted God’s gift of eternal life. That’s what made me a Christian. Since then, I’ve seen a lot of joyless Christians. I’ve also seen a lot who get their entertainment the same way non-Christians do; movies, clubs, parties, etc. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those things, in and of themselves, but the atmosphere there is usually not conducive to wholesome thoughts. So I decided to do something about it by giving Christians (and non-Christians too) the opportunity to have fun at parties without the negative influences so often found there – and I became a DJ.

After all, we all need to have fun! Shouldn’t we be able to have a good time without exposing ourselves to all the bad things the world’s full of?

I think so!
But the most important thing to me is, — will you consider accepting God’s gift to you?

If you have, and would like to tell me about it, or if you still have questions, please feel free to email me at dave@superdavedj.com.
