WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN

May 16, 2014

Colossians 3:16

 

Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.

 

LESSON

 

Why would Paul emphasize the importance of music in our lives? What is it about “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” that can change our lives… and the lives of others around us? The importance of such singing is clearly seen in the fact that singing will be the only part of our worship that continues in heaven. In heaven we will not need the preaching of the gospel anymore for we will have the living Word of God Himself. We will not need prayer in heaven for we shall have all our needs supplied and shall be forever in God’s presence. We will no longer need the Scriptures and the reading of the Scriptures in heaven, for we shall then no longer see through a glass darkly, but face to face. But we will still sing forever the praises of God in the company of the angels and of the church made perfect.

God is more interested in what is on the inside of us than He is in what is on the outside of us.Christ is risen. As Eugene Peterson says, now is the time to “Let the Word of Christ…have run of the house…And sing…your hearts out to God.
