“MUSIC ….The sound of JOY”..

worship the Lord

****

WORSHIP the Lord in the splendor of His holiness ….
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good:
His LOVE endures forever.”
1 Chronicles 16 : 34.

Music touched both the private and public lives
of the Hebrews in the Old Testament.
In their social gatherings and their processions-
whether religious, triumphal, bridal or funeral –
MUSIC played an integral part.
In David’s and Solomon’s court, choirs of men
and women were involved.

Psalms were sung to chants or
simple melodies accompanied by instruments.

In The New Testament we read an
experience of Jesus coming into
the house of a Synagogue official
whose daughter had died…
“He saw the flute-players,
and the crowd in noisy disorder.
Jesus said to the crowd -“
Depart, for the girl is not
dead-
but is asleep. “{Matthew 9:23-24}
What part did the music caused the people
to be disorderly and noisy?

MUSIC – when rightly used is a
powerful form of “PRAISE.”
It is an effective way to help young people
memorize words as they repeat it in song.

MUSIC- has power to subdue,power to quicken
thought and to awaken sympathy.

To promote harmony of action and to
banish the gloom that destroys
courage and weaken efforts.

Unfortunately, Satan realizes the powerof music
and is skilled in exciting and charming
human minds with music that does
not elevate our thinking.

We recognize that personal taste
plays a part in what kind of music people appreciate.
Too often even some Christian music
with discordant sounds does not
elevate our souls.

So we need to PRAISE GOD for MUSIC –
that builds us spiritually.
Thank Him for the marvelous Hymns we can sing.
Sing joyfully to the Lord in melodious MUSIC!

God’s Blessings -Happy Sabbath.

One thought on ““MUSIC ….The sound of JOY”..

  1. My spirit was lifted this morning singing “How Great Thou Art” in the Church of Christ Springvale Church. The soft drums helped me concentrate on the words “And when I think that God His son not sparing sent Him to die to take away my sin I scarce can take it in”
    Then I was able to proclaim “My God how great thou art
    Then sings my soul My Saviour God to thee How Great thou art. How Great thou art.”
