Word of Encouragement-Psalm

May 13th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Word of Encouragement is Psalm.

A psalm is a song or poem used in worship. When you ask people their favorite book of the Bible, it is not uncommon for people to say “the Psalms.” Today, we may speak many of the Psalms to each other, but these writings were actually meant to be used as worship songs.

Today, many artists continue to record songs based on the Psalms, and many listeners are greatly encouraged by their content.

Ephesians 5:18 encourages us to “be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Find encouragement in the words of the Psalms to lead you to a place of worship in the Year of Endurance.

Eye on Integrity-Glorifying God with Music

June 27th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Psalm 69:30.

“I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.”

Throughout the Bible, music is used as an instrument of praise for God. Moses sang a song after the Israelites crossed the Red Sea safely on dry ground.

After the LORD delivered David from his enemies, David sang to the LORD, “I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations.”

Paul and Silas sang hymns to God while they were in prison just before an earthquake shook them to freedom.

Glorifying God with music is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
