Singing is one part of Worship Service and it is important to get it right. The following are scriptures to show how God wants it done.

Sing: To produce musical tones by means of the voice. (Webster Dictionary)

Psalm: A sacred song or poem used in the praise or Worship of the Deity. (Webster Dictionary)

Hebrews 2:12
Congregation singing

1st Corinthians 14:15
Sing with spirit–Sing with the mind

Colossians 3:16
Teach–Admonish one another

Ephesians 5:18-20
Address one another–Make melody in the heart

Romans 15:9
Sing to God’s name

Acts 16:25
Singing hymns to God

Matthew 26:30
Sang a hymn

James 5:13

Singing plays a very significant role in Worship Service as we admonish one another and also use it as a teaching tool. We sing praises to the Lord, and we are told to sing with Spirit and understanding. In Ephesians we see that we are to address on another and sing with the heart.
If you take the definition of the word Psalm, add that to the definition of Sing, then couple that to the fact there is no example of instruments used in Worship Services in the New Testament Church, that leaves no doubt about the usage of instruments in Worship Services.

HAVE an AWESOME day all!! SMILE, God loves you.

How Not To Be Sad.

Sing and be Happy. (Read the words to the song)

Covid issues
Political unrest
Loved one lost
Job loss
Money issues

Worry over things we have no control over makes us sad and can lead to depression. If our joy depends on circumstances, we are in trouble, because circumstances are

always changing. There are too many variables for them to remain the same.

Romans 8:31-39
No matter how bad things seem, nothing separates us from God’s love.

2nd Corinthians 1:3-4
God will comfort us in our afflictions.

Hebrews 13:5-6
God will not forsake you.

Philippians 4:4-7
Have no anxiety about anything. PRAY!!

Philippians 4:11-13
Be content with what we have.

1st Timothy 6:6-12
Reread 10,11, and 12

James 5:10-11

Count Your Many Blessings. (Read the words to the song)

2 main ways to not be sad–1) BE CONTENT and 2) Quit worrying about things you can’t control.

Have a GREAT day all!
SMILE God loves YOU!!
