Worship Thoughts: Singing
Psalm 69:30 “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.”
Psalm 118:14 “The LORD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation.”
If you don’t know this already: worship is more than singing. Worship ultimately is a lifestyle of response to a great and loving God. If you ever make the mistake to limit it to singing or music, you’ve missed the true pleasure of what worship is.
But, worship is singing; it’s part of it. If you have a problem with that, you have a problem with worship.
Here are a few observations when it comes to singing:
1. If you have a problem singing worship, you might just have a problem with Jesus. Psalm 118:14 tells us that the song isn’t our song; our song is Jesus. If you can’t sing or just don’t want to … there’s something wrong with your “song”.
2. The writer of Psalm 69:30 tells us that they are going to sing praise and thanksgiving to God. It apparently was not enough to speak it. There’s just something compelling about singing; it’s more emotional than just speaking. So, if you feel satisfied in your communication with God and you’re not singing: you’re missing out on something.
What about you: is singing important to you? what’s your opinion?
