Why You Should Sing Worship To Jesus
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.
God gave every believer a song (Revelation 14:3, 15:3, 5:9). The specific song we are to sing is the song of the saints. Singing is an instruction, it is in the life of God (Mathew 26:30, Psalms 118, Hebrews 2:12, Ephesians 5:9, Colossians 3:16, James 5:13, Romans 15:9, Acts 13:33, etc). We are singing spirits ( 1 Corinthians 14:2).
Spiritual songs are songs from the spirit (Colossians 3:16). When the Bible says ‘word’, he is talking about (logos, wisdom, and insight) and from that scripture, every song that we sing must teach us the word of God. The new song (song of the new covenant) is not an emotional reaction. We sing teaching songs and not entertaining songs. Our focus is Christ. A new song reflects what God has done in Christ and when we sing, we glorify Him by identifying who we are in Him (Revelation 15:3). Our song is His song… The song of Jesus, what we sing to God is about Christ.
Our songs must be consistent in spite of our experiences, every believer should sing the same songs (Hebrews 13:5), giving thanks and glory to God( 1 Timothy 6:12, Hebrews 11:13, 1 John 4:2, 1 John 2:23).
