“Now Let’s All Stand And Sing With All Our Hearts”

Yes! As Joy filled, redeemed and grateful children of God we can all respond to that. Singing is a major part of our ministry to the Lord. It is a significant part of our fellowship together as we gather in praise to him who has loved us and washed us from sin. Colossians 3 v16 tells us to:
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord”. 
Ephesians 5 v19 gives us a similar exhortation encouraging us to “sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among ourselves”.

The Bible; God’s word to us, is full of song. Creation itself was accompanied with song. God tells Job that when he laid the foundations of the earth (Job 38 v4) “the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy”. When our Lord and Saviour came to ‘seek and to save that which was lost’ the heavens opened over Bethlehem with an explosion of joyful song. The birth of Jesus was accompanied by song. The angels sang, Mary sang, Zechariah sang and Simeon sang.

The first song in the Bible is the song of Moses in Exodus 15. After their deliverance from Egypt and their miraculous crossing of the Red Sea, Moses led the Children of Israel in this song of triumph and gratitude starting with the words “I will sing unto the Lord for he has triumphed gloriously”. It was a spontaneous song springing out of a grateful heart. Guess what! At the end of time, in heaven, the song of Moses will be heard again as victorious children of God, accompanied by angels sing “The Song of Moses and of the Lamb” Revelation 15.

Do you have a personal song of praise? Is the Lord your strength and your song? Sing about his love, his power in your life, his deliverance and his grace. Sing about Jesus, his love for you and your love for him.

Yes! Let’s sing with all our hearts. Let’s sing in fellowship and in harmony with each other. We have been delivered and blessed; brought out of darkness into his light. So, from now on, sing a little louder:

“Sing a little louder, My weapon is a melody,
Sing a little louder, Heaven comes to fight for me,
Sing a little louder…”

Let’s fill our lungs with air, our hearts with his Word and our mouths with songs of praise.

Be blessed as you sing a new song.

Eddie.
