SINGERS NEEDED,

IN CHOIR WITHIN

  

 

In no way is this to be considered a knock against our choir.  Even though we’re always open to new voices in the loft, we already do have some great singers.

No, this isn’t specifically about the loft.  Singers are needed in the pews.  Singers are needed in the conference room.  Singers are needed in the office.  Singers are needed in the Sunday School rooms, in the Fellowship Hall, in the parking lot… everywhere.  Singers are needed in the world. 

You don’t have to wear a choir robe to be a singer.  You don’t even have to have a good voice.  The singers we really need are the ones who sing with their hearts; the ones who have such a deep love of God that their voices and actions ring out with praise.

 

Tune Your Hearts to Sing His Praise

Someone made a sign that currently decorates the Music Room.  It says, “Tune my heart to sing Thy Grace.”  This verse is from the hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”…

Come Thou Fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing they grace.

Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.

Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above.

Praise the Mount!  I’m fixed upon it, mount of Thy redeeming love.

 

 

God gave us music, poetry, and art in general so that we could use it to express our wonder and praise.  God is too big for words!  Our priorities, passions, and actions must keep pointing to God.  Check out the following verses:

Exodus 15: 1  “I will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted. The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea.
1 Chronicles 16:8-10  Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.

Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.

Psalm  30:4-5  Sing to the Lord, you saints of his;  praise his holy name.

For his anger lasts only a moment,  but his favor lasts a lifetime; 

weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.  

Psalm  98:1-2  Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.

The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.

Psalm 146:2  I will praise the Lord all my life;  I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. 

 

 

Isaiah 44:23  Sing for joy, O heavens, for the Lord has done this; shout aloud, O earth beneath.

Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the Lord has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel.  

 

1 Corinthians  14:15  So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit,

but I will also sing with my mind.

 

Colossians 3:16-17   Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom,

and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. 

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. 

James 5:13  Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God’s Help Wanted Sign…

Over and over again, the Bible calls us towards Singing- in song and in every other form.   Are we using our voices, our talents, and even our hands and feet to act out our love for God? 

God wants more Singers.  Tune your hearts and sing His Grace and Praise!
