Christian Music 5

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

In our final devotional in this series on music there is one point that we should all consider. Who are we singing for?  Are we singing for the congregation so that they can see how talented we are?  Are we singing for ourselves so that we can be the center of attention for a short time? 
Thankfully even though this happens it is the exception rather than the rule.  When we sing we should be singing to God.  The song leader is the director, we are the performers and God is the audience. (Actually that is the case with the entire worship service.  The preacher is the director, the congregation are the performers and the God is the audience.
Some of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard were not sung by people with great talent. They were sung by people with a great faith and a great love for God.

We welcome questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
