Singing as Ministry

Music seems to be built into our souls, and our elders at Oakview are treated to music frequently from various individuals and groups who sing and play instruments for them. Wednesday, April 13th, Zion’s Cause Baptist Church came for their monthly “singing” and as usual, several elders enjoyed listening and singing along.

Psalm 100 tells us to

“Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.”

Music can help us to experience God’s nearness, and to express our joy in His presence. Music and emotion are wonderful gifts. We may not often think of the ability to enjoy music as a gift, but it brings us joy and pleases our loving Heavenly Father.

We thank You, Father God, for giving us emotion to express what is deep within our soul. We thank you that you are glorified through praises and music sung to You. Help us to remember that in worshipping You, we are blessed.
