Exhortation: Music as Culture

Music reflects the culture of a church.  Whether for good or ill, what you sing establishes the tone of worship. We are conveying something when we sing. Music in worship is not just a past-time to get to the real deal, but music is the real deal. Everything we do this morning is the real deal.  Music is a sung sermon. Singing is glorified speech. When we sing we are glorifying our environment.  When we sing this morning, whether a psalm or a hymn we are speaking words of wisdom; we are declaring what God has declared. We are partaking of the joy of the angels and archangels in heaven. We are musical beings. Our song to Yahweh is one of the deepest expressions of adoration and thankfulness. This is precisely why our music ought to reflect who we are as a people and who we worship as a Church. So let us sing a new song to our risen Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Prepare our tongues to sing your praise, O Lord our God.
