FACTS ABOUT MUSIC
It is important to note that a direct connection exists between being filled with the Holy Spirit and singing as recorded in Ephesians 5:18-19 (NLT): 18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, 19 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. The music we play and the songs we sing in our churches, if connected with our Spirit, help in expressing true worship to God with deep reverence and also to fix our hearts to the goodness and glory of the Lord. For instance, the hymn “How Great Thou Art,” tells us of God’s majesty being revealed in creation, His perfect sacrifice on the Cross, and His second coming for His elects. There is always a song and a Scripture to meet the need of any situation in life.
The music of this week, Abide With Me by Henry F. Lyte, is a Prayer Song published in 1417 hymnals.
