Why Sing?

"Sing to the Lord, you saints of His; praise His holy name" (Psa.30:4).

My mentor as a young Christian was this short former Roman Catholic priest turned minister. He spoke with a thick and rich Italian accent and was one of the best men I have ever known. He did nothing halfway, and that included singing. When he sang the bass part of a song, every note was correct, clear and booming. Even though I know that one does not have to sing loudly, his booming voice was a part of his praise to God. The word hymn comes from the Greek word meaning, a song in praise of. The Psalms call upon us to praise our Lord in song. I would like to share some of those verses with you this morning as we take a look at one of the ways we have to give our Lord the praise He deserves... "Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation" (Psa.95:1)... "Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of the earth; sing to Him a psalm of praise" (Psa.47:6-7)... "Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise His name; proclaim His salvation day after day" (Psa.95:1-2)...."Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have worked salvation for us" (Psa:98:1).... "Praise be to the Lord, for He has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song" (Psa.28:6-7).... "Praise the Lord, for the name of the Lord is good; sing praise to His name, for that is pleasant" (Psa.135:3).... "Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful song" (Psa.100:2).... Christians are taught to sing praises to the Lord when they are joyful. "Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise" (James 5:13)....Paul and Silas even sang praises to the Lord when they were persecuted and in prison. Our God is worthy of being praised in song... If you can or can't sing well outwardly, be sure to sing in your heart... Praise the Lord....

Have a great day... Let His light shine through you... Love mark Phil.4:11
