Did you know that God wants to hear us sing? I’m not sure anyone wants to hear me sing, but God does! There is a lot of us who can’t carry a tune in a bucket, and yet He still wants us to sing to Him. The dogs might be howling, but the Lord is delighted. Not only does He want us to sing to Him individually, but He also wants us to come together to sing to Him. Can you imagine what it would look like if life was a musical, and we addressed one another with hymns and songs? The unbelieving public would think we were a bunch of fruit loops! Heck, so would the believers! What’s new about that? This goes along with what I wrote yesterday about not getting drunk. People who are drunk sing filthy songs and praise the god of wine. Well, God wants us to be more devoted to singing psalms and spiritual songs that raise Him up instead.
I picture people in the old west around a piano with their booze in their hand laughing and singing. Why can’t we do the same thing when we are having fun, but instead of being drunk on alcohol, be filled with the Holy Spirit, addressing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs? If we would include God in our fun and fellowship, I believe He would make it memorable.
addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 5:10-20
