Breakpoint: How good it is to thank the Lord!

“Does God intend us to merely listen to music—or to sing ourselves?”

“I don’t sing very well, so isn’t it better for me to just listen to the music during worship?”

Well, whether you sing well or not, check out the latest Breakpoint commentary from Chuck Colson about this topic, and let’s lift up our voices together and sing praises to God Most High!

    As one who is constantly assaulted for his joyous singing unto the Lord and singing in general, I would like to say I very much appreciated this post. So many times I have had a conversation like this:

    Me: (in a loud, joyous singing voice)
    Peer AY: Hey Greg? Who sings that song?
    Me: Hillsong man!
    Peer AY: Let’s keep it that way.

    It’s hard to keep up my loud, joyous singing, against such a flood of groans and opposition, but I somehow perservered. And now I see why! Amen Chuck Colson. Let the singing continue!

    Whether you have a good voice or not, I also agree that everyone should just sing. It was discouraging when I hear groans of not wanting to sing during Sunday house church. Then I feel weird about my voice sounding the loudest cause people are not singing with all of their hearts. Maybe some of the hymns are too high for the brothers? I understand people don’t want others to hear their voices especially in a small group setting, but the song sounds richer with more people singing. Also, singing to our Lord shows that you are enjoying His presence since it’s hard to sing when you’re sad! “How great is our God, SING WITH ME, how great is our God!”

    Amen, even though I’m a pretty horrid singer, this encourages me to keep singing!
