Christians Sing

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Worshiping Christians meet together regularly and sing. It’s an amazing thing. The rest of the world does not do this. They do not have a schedule of their present and future that includes singing. And we don’t just sing for the sake of singing; we sing for the sake of praising. Today’s verse is part of the same set of verses used for Sunday’s Our Daily Bread reading. It is also one of the great 3:16’s in the New Testament. This verse is a snapshot of redeemed life. The more you know Jesus, the more you sing. Heaven is for singing. Life seems less than life when we lose our songs or our interest in them. If there are more important things to do, then we are asleep, at war, or lost.

Lord, restore my song today. Whether or not human ears enjoy my vocal offerings today, I know that You will! You are my song (Psalm 118:14), Lord! Make my heart a dwelling place for Your Word that therefore must overflow with thankfulness for You. Amen.

  1. Amen! I’m not the best singer, but I know God hears a beautiful song and I can feel the love going back and forth between us as I praise Him!
