(June 16/17) Sing to the Lord

Psalm 100:1-2

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

Psalm 95:1-2

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!

Colossians 3:16

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.

Ephesians 5:19

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

Psalm 147:1

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.

Psalm 95:1
