"And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised the Lord day by day, singing with loud instruments unto the Lord."
(2 Chronicles 30:21 KJV)
Can you sing? When you sing to the Lord, He does not want perfect harmony. (If He did He would have made you that way) He wants your hearts' praise for Himself. So we who cannot sing have a chance to tell Him how wonderful He is. Singing is an expression of how our heart really feels about the One who created us from dust then saved us by sending His Son to die for us.
Here are a few of the reasons we should sing praises to Our Awesome God: 1) We love Him and sing His Praises because He is worthy of our praise and none are more worthy than He (Revelations 5:9 KJV). 2) We praise Him in song because He is our awesome strength (Romans 5:6-11 KJV). 3) We sing our praises because He gives us salvation from our sins (Exodus 14:13 KJV). And 4) Because we believe in Him and Jesus Christ..
When He forgives us, our hearts are lightened and we are encouraged to go on. Yes, when we sing His praises, He gives us hope, forgiveness and a home in heaven for eternity with Him. Which of His praise songs do you like the most? Sing them!
When you really look at the situation, you see that your attitude will change from not being able to sing praises to realizing what your singing does for yourself and for God. It will become a positive in your life, a need to say, "I love you, God," in another way and a need to thank Him for what He has done and will do. Yes, sing praises to Our Awesome God and reap the marvelous benefits. Make your heart happy and your burdens lighter by singing and praising our God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Heaven has a choir! Are you going to be a member?
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we have Bible Study at 9:30 AM then pray and worship Him this Sunday at 10:30 AM. Then at 6:00 PM we start an hour of Bible Study along with AWANA for children until 7:30 PM (September through May). On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests and a Bible Study along with a separate Spanish Bible Study until 8:00 PM. We love visitors!
