[PC-USA] 1998-02-16 - Singing to God

Today we will look at what the Bible has to say about us singing to God. We are to sing songs celebrating God's blessings, to proclaim God's provision of salvation, to teach each other in songs, sing in our spirits, sing in our church gatherings, sing in times of difficulty.

(Exo 15:1-2 NASB) Then Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and said, "I will sing to the LORD, for He is highly exalted; The horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea. 2 "The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; This is my God, and I will praise Him; My father's God, and I will extol Him.

(Rev 5:8-9 NASB) "And when He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, having each one a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying, "Worthy art Thou to take the book, and to break its seals; for Thou wast slain, and didst purchase for God with Thy blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

(Deu 31:19 NASB) Now therefore, write this song for yourselves, and teach it to the sons of Israel; put it on their lips, in order that this song may be a witness for Me against the sons of Israel.

(1 Cor 14:15 NASB) What is the outcome then? I shall pray with the spirit and I shall pray with the mind also; I shall sing with the spirit and I shall sing with the mind also.

(Acts 19:25 NASB) these he gathered together with the workmen of similar trades, and said, "Men, you know that our prosperity depends upon this business.

(Eph 5:19-20 NASB) speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.
