Last week, I was doing the Weekly Scripture Writing Schedule on Singing. The memory verse was Ephesians 5:16, “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs; singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” I don’t know about you, but I have always LOVED to sing. I believe that singing is a very important part of our worship to God. In fact, I always start my Ladies’ Bible Class with a song. There’s something about a group blending their voices in praise that sets the tone for Bible study.
I’ve heard some people say – “Well, I can’t carry a tune in a bucket!” Thankfully, the Psalmist clarified it in Psalms 98:4, “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.” It really doesn’t matter how well we can sing, we’re still supposed to do it. I know that Steve always says that “Courtney sings alto, and I sing ALSO!” (Actually, he has a very nice voice!) I know of some who do just make “joyful noises”, but it must be beautiful to God.
Have you ever thought about the fact that singing is the only act of worship that we’ll still do in heaven? We won’t need preaching, praying, giving, or to partake of the communion to remember until He comes again. But, we know that there is singing in heaven (Rev. 14:3; Rev. 15:2-3) So, if you don’t like it here on earth – you probably won’t like it in heaven. Think about it. God Bless, Courtney
