(June 16/17) Sing to the Lord

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,

Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

Singing is one of the great blessings of the gathered body of Christ. It has always been a hallmark of those who trust in the Lord to express their worship through song. Not all Christians sing well, but all believers who lift up their voice in song to the Lord make a joyful noise that is pleasing to the Lord. Others may not be fond of your voice, and you may hate to hear it. However, not so with the Lord. He loves when His people lift up songs of praise. Never fail to do what the Lord desires.

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being.

I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Whenever the church gathers for worship, believers are invited to sing. Some sing, but their hearts and minds are not engaged. Others check out altogether. Please don't. Do not miss the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with other believers and express your praise in a united way. Let your mind be filled with thoughts about God's Word and His character. Consider who He is and all He has done. Then, let your heart, mind, and voice respond with joyful singing.

Bob Kauflin writes, "Different perspectives on how the church should sing will always exist. But at the end of the day, our singing will be more satisfying, life-transforming, and Christ-exalting if our thoughts are rooted in the words of the One who gave us a song to sing in the first place."

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
