  1. Singing With GraceIn Your Hearts Unto God What the New Testament Teaches About Singing in Worship to God

  2. Singing Basics • Singing can be individual (Acts 16:25; Jas. 5:13), or congregational (1 Cor. 14:15,26; Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16) • Singing, involving the whole congregation, was done by everyone – “one another,” not a soloist or a choir (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16) • Singing (vocal music) was done acappella only, unaccompanied by instruments (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16)

  3. Singing Basics • Singing is an act of worship to God (Acts 16:25; Rom. 15:9; Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16; Heb. 2:12; 13:15; Jas. 5:13; Rev. 5:9; 14:3; 15:3) • Singing teaches and encourages both ourselves and others (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16) – What about members who don’t sing? They disobey the command to sing! • Singing is to be heart-felt, not mechanical or routine (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16)

  4. Singing Basics • Singing focuses on spiritual thoughts (psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, praise), not secular thoughts (Mt. 26:30; Mk. 14:26; Acts 16:25; Eph. 5:18-19; Col. 3:16; Jas. 5:13) • Singing was done when times were good (Jas. 5:13), and when times were bad (Acts 16:25)

  5. Singing in Review • Singing exemplifies the unity of the church (Rom. 15:6) • Singing is a form of teaching (Col. 3:16) • Singing expresses the words of the H.S. and Christ dwelling in us (Eph. 5:18-19; Col. 3:16) • Singing involves the whole person (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16; Heb. 13:15)

  6. Singing in Review • Singing is for mutual edification (Eph. 5:19) • Singing is a form of praise worship unto God (Col. 3:16) • Singing is a confession of faith (Heb. 13:15) • Singing is a sacrifice (Heb. 13:15) • Singing expresses deep emotion (Jas. 5:13)

  7. How Can We Improve Our Singing? • Sing … sing out, so others can hear and be taught and admonished [ Parents, encourage your child at an early age to sing] • Sing from the heart sincerely and with thanksgiving, not from ritual or routine • Sing words that you understand (remember, the words or more important than the notes)

  8. How Can We Improve Our Singing? • Sing new songs to keep one from merely “going through the motions” • Sing to worship/praise God and edify (self and others), not to entertain or attract attention to self
