Forms of Worship Using the Mouth – Singing – Part 1

4. SINGING

There are over 120 references in the Bible to singing. This is one of the key forms of worship. Any mood of the hearts of man, or the Spirit of God can be expressed in song.

Three Key Scriptures in the New Testament about Singing:

1 Cor. 14:15-16 …I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say “Amen” at your giving of thanks…..

Eph. 5:18b-19 …be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.

Col. 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.

From these three Scriptures, we find the following principles in groups of three:

1. We must be filled with the Spirit so that we may:

Pray with the spirit

Sing with the spirit

Bless with the spirit

2. We must be in right relationship with one another:

Speaking to one another.

Teaching one another.

Admonishing one another.

3. We must have the Word of God in our hearts:

The Word must dwell in us.

The Word must be rich in us.

The Word must be wise in us.

4. We must sing to the Lord:

With singing in our hearts.

With melody in our hearts.

With grace in our hearts.

5. We must sing:

Psalms

Hymns

Spiritual songs
