Sermons about Singing
Every one of us needs to be a good student in the school of life and not waste experience. Psalm 108 is an arrangement of two of David's previous Psalms from two separate experiences. Here we find the Psalmist applying the lessons learned in former struggles to the new dilemma at hand. This message provides valuable insights for each of us going through the various difficulties of life.
In today’s message, we look at the Magnificat – Mary’s song of praise upon hearing the news that she will carry the Christ child. In a unique sense, this is the first Christmas song. Why does Mary sing? What can we learn from this passage about how we can sing during Christmas time?
Some of us will live through some hard times, and some of easy will live through easier times, the challenge is faithfulness in both. In this text we see the faithfulness of both, and we see how to celebrate when renewal and revival comes.
Christians are inseparable from music, but can also be one of the most divisive issues for congregations. So, what does the Bible have to say on the matter? Firstly, let's be clear that when we talk about worship, we don't just mean music and singing; although that's one way we worship, it's actually a whole-life activity for Christians. We sing because it helps us RESPOND to God's grace; it expresses our delight, praise, joy and thanks. The Bible also COMMANDS everyone to sing. It helps us to REMEMBER God's word, because we easily forget the truth and music can help us learn truth. Music and singing helps us REFLECT God's Glory. Main points: 1. It's not an optional extra, 2. We should be focussing on God when we sing, 3. We need to choose songs carefully, 4. We should sing most about Jesus and His work, 5. What matters most is your heart. Finally, singing is for everyone, whether you're musical or not; ask not "Have I got a voice?", but "Has God given me a song?".
Have you ever wondered why we spend so much time singing when the church gathers together? Why do we do it? What is it for? Listen as pastor Lance Parrott calls us to understand these questions about singing and to understand how sing allows the gospel to dwell among us richly.
In Psalm 66 we find a wonderful pattern of praise that can help us as discipline ourselves to be a people of praise each Sunday morning and throughout the week.
