Why we sing…



Today’s contemporary music is quite innovative and luxurious .
A chant, a slang becomes an Anthem as long as it catches the fancy of the audience and resonates with its borders of enjoyment and appetites .
Good enough .
Entertainment is about what is wanted and trendy.
Yet the church must sing for a different reason.
We are singing to and about God .
Jesus .
The Holy Spirit.
The church .
The Work of The Spirit .
The mission of the Gospel .
All praise worthy of God.
It matters less the Music genre .
It should be as less entertaining as possible .
It mustn’t lack healthy and good rhythm and artistry too.
But its fulcrum is scripture .
The themes of scripture must be very loud and louder than the music .
Hence songs must be like teaching sermons.
Theological preachings .
Only difference is this is with music .
They must cause us to meditate on scripture .
Pray ,
Study ,
Preach the gospel ,
Walk in the Spirit,in Holiness ,
Follow the leading of the Spirit ,
Be strong members of the local church.
They mustn’t be bland when it comes to Bible theology and truth and very lively in artistry and sophistry of its music .
That’s inadequate .
Hence church praise worship leaders must be given the same qualifications like the Psalmist(s) who wrote scriptures.
Men filled with the Spirit .
Full of the Word.
Their songs must be sermons or from sermons.
I have always taught that the
Work of a church music ministry/ choir is to turn the church teaching and doctrine and theology into musical notes .
So we walk in the word.
The choir and music ministry mustn’t be notorious for making us get emotional in praise or enhance our danceable performances .
That’s being worldly .
Paul teaches differently
Colossians 3:16 KJV
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.

In a world carried away with trends,
We must stick with the word and Spirit alone .
Let there be more content in our songs than
“You have been good to me “
“I know you will see me through “
“It’s my time “
“I no go suffer ,never “
It’s less than scripture
Not the core of worship
And we should not accommodate that much !
