(Jan 9) Sing as Long as You Live

Psalm 104:33 "I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being"


There is something unique and inspiring when the body of Christ joins together to sing!


There are many parts of a corporate worship service that are critically important. The proclamation of the Word of God is always the highlight as we come under the weight and authority of inspired Scripture. Times of prayer cause us to quiet our busyness and communicate with the Lord. Words of testimony or listening to a choir offer a sacrifice of praise on behalf of the congregation are encouraging to our souls.


Yet, there is something unique and inspiring when the body of Christ joins together to sing!


Think about it. Congregational singing is the one part of a worship service where everyone is actively involved in the same way, saying the same thing, at the same time. People of all ages, all educational backgrounds, all income brackets...all of us, join together to offer our praise to the Lord. Indeed the gift of music is one of God's greatest gifts to His church.


The psalmist declares he will sing to the Lord as long as he lives. This means he will sing to the Lord through any and all seasons of life.


Some seasons are easy to sing through, while others are much more challenging. When we are overflowing with joy, we have songs to express our praise. When our hearts are heavy and burdened, we have other songs to sing that articulate our desperate dependence upon the Lord. Whatever the season, through the mercies of God, there is a song to sing. We can sing in the church sanctuary or the car. The gift of music goes everywhere we do.


Do you need a song to comfort an anxious heart? How about "He Will Hold Me Fast" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8wR9AI1XT4


Do you need a way to express your wonder for the greatness of God? How about "Then Sings My Soul"

Do you need to hear a song that articulates the fullness of the gospel message? I recommend "His Robes for Mine"

Have you lost a loved one and need a song to express the longing in your heart to be reunited with them as you enjoy the presence of Christ for all eternity? Be blessed by the words of "One Day"

Let us say as the psalmist said, "I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being."
