I used to attend a non-denominational church and I loved it but I realized the reason was because of the music and while yes, the message was uplifting too, I wanted to focus on music. We all know music effects us in different ways. When we are sad sometimes we listen to uplifting songs that get us in the "mood" to feel better. When we are mad sometimes we listen to music that represents how we feel.
Anyway, many churches now use contemporary and rock "Christian" music before their sermons begin. The purpose is to get you ready for the big message of the day right? I have heard a lot claim that it is the holy spirit that moves you and that the euphoric state of mind that you are in is again the holy spirit speaking through you.
My thinking and some of you may or may not agree is that music is music. It can send powerful feelings because of the rhythm and words. The same goes for the sermon or any other motivational speech. It is not necessarily the holy spirit or truth but it is what perhaps you need to hear at the time and the way it is spoken.
