Sing!

The LORD our God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. – Zephaniah 3:17

Did you know God sings?  The God who is the Mighty One, Savior, Deliverer, King of kings, and Lord of lords also sings!

He made us in His image, and when He saved us, He gave us new identities, new lives, new beginnings, and new songs.  Psalm 40:3 says, “He has put a new song in my mouth – praise to our God.”  It is the song of redemption for the glory of God.  This is a song many will hear, and they will fear the Lord and place their trust in Him.

We sing because God sings.  Music is a gift from God, and He has given us much about with to rejoice.  Authenticity should mark our worship.  It should involve a response from our hearts to praise Him for all He has done for us.

Paul wrote, “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” (Colossians 3:16).  Singing stirs our hearts and hides God’s Word in our hearts.  It helps us remember all the Lord has done and helps us teach others. 

Pray:

  • Pray that God in His mercy will remove the Coronavirus from our country; world.
  • Pray that during this “time of pause”, UBC and along with other churches will draw closer to Him.
  • Pray for opportunities to live out the gospel and share Jesus. These are great days to do so!
  • Pray for the faithful giving of tithes and offerings. While this is a time of adjustment for us all, the bills of the church and our overhead expenses continue to be a weight on us. In addition, there are missionaries and workers around the world who are dependent on the financial support of Annie Armstrong that is made possible only through your generous contributions. We have the Lord’s promise that, as we give, He will supply our own needs through His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
