Life Application Truth-A New Song

July 20th, 2012

JOHN SHIRK – From Psalm 98:1.

“Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things, his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.”

The LORD has provided music as an instrument of worship. As time passes, we listen for new songs as instruments of worship.  Why is that? New songs have a fresh impact on us. They give us lyrics that stir us to holy passion, or maybe the lyrics connect with us because they describe an emotion or situation that we are experiencing at the current time. A new song may expand our awareness of God’s character as we praise Him for who He is and what He has done.

Have you ever thought of writing your own song to God? This can be a fulfilling exercise as we express personally what God means to us, or how He has transformed our lives by His grace. Whether we sing a new song that we have written or one written by someone else, music is a powerful expression of worship when it comes from the heart.

Singing a new song to the LORD is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

    I personally love singing! I even right my own songs. So, I decided to give my gift for the Lord to use and I only right songs that bring glory to Him. I sing them at my school in different classes and to all my friends and even random kids at recess!! I’ve inspired many kids to right christian songs for Him, but kids have also tried to discourage me from righting songs like them. So, that verse really helps me remember that I’m doing something that pleases the Lord!
    P.S.- sorry that that was so long! 🙂
