The Reason We Sing

Everybody can sing.

Not everyone sings well, but everybody can sing. Some people don't like to sing. Some choose to limit their singing to private locations like the shower, or in the car. Some people sing beautifully and skillfully. Others have difficulty carrying a tune in a dump truck... let alone a bucket.

But, everybody can sing. And everybody should.

Music moves us. Upbeat music can cause a worker to complete his task more quickly. Somber music can express deep emotion. Grand music with high notes and crescendos can stir the heart. Most of us have had that experiences of the proverbial "chills" or "goosebumps" with a particularly moving song. That's because God made us musical. Some more so than others, but we are all musical.

"Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!" Psalm 95:1-2

The Bible talks a lot about music. There are references to praising God with singing, as well as praising Him on instruments. Clearly music plays a big part in worship. It is part of worship, but not all of it.

This Sunday (April 2, 2017), in continuing the Mountain Top series, we will take a look at the role of music in worship. You do not want to miss our morning worship gatherings at 8:30AM and 11AM. There will be inspiring worship through music featuring the TBC choir, ensemble, quartet, solos, instruments, and of course, YOU.

Let's praise the Lord together! See you Sunday!
