What is Myrrh?

Early one Saturday morning, after we got home from a mission trip to Europe , God awakened Bill, and impressed on his heart to change the name of our “group” from The Murks to Myrrh. Amazingly enough, when Bill told the rest of the family about the idea, they loved it. When we went to scripture to discover more about Myrrh, we were astounded. The scriptural uses for Myrrh go hand in hand with the theme of our ministry! Here are just a few of the things we found:

 Myrrh is an oil to be used as a balm for healing (Isaiah 61:1-3)

 Myrrh is used to anoint someone for service to the King (Esther 2:12)

When burned as incense, myrrh is a symbol of prayers rising to heaven. Liquid myrrh was used in the making of the holy anointing oil for the anointing of the priests and the articles of the tabernacle.

“…It will be the sacred anointing oil. Then use it to anoint the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the Testimony”.  
Exodus 30:25,26

“All your robes are fragrant with myrrh…the music of the strings makes you glad”. 
Psalms 45:8

 Thanks be to God, who…through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.”
II Corinthians 2:14-15

We asked several close friends and people we highly respect to help us carefully look for any negatives about this decision. One of the first things we thought could be confusing, was that there is a Christian label called Myrrh Records. Just recently, though, they merged with Word Records, and are no longer using the name. We sincerely asked God to close the door if it was not His will to make this change, but at every turn, He kept confirming it to us by swinging doors wide open, and accomplishing things with ease.

For nearly twenty years it has been our calling not to just entertain people, but to truly minister through testimony and music. Our commitment to musical and spiritual excellence, without compromise, remains the same. We are very excited about the changes taking place in our ministry, and are looking forward to seeing what God has in store for Myrrh!
