Ephesians 5: 18-19 …….be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs…..
Our Bible study this past Sunday evening showed us that Christian singing is not natural, but supernatural. My devotional I read this morning points out that the Holy Spirit is God. He is supernatural. He comes and fills his people and moves them to act in certain ways. So Christian singing in corporate worship is to be the expression of the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
SINGING IS FROM THE HEART
Ephesians 5: 19b…..singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord.”
So the opposite of singing and making melody with your heart would be singing and making melody with your mouth or whatever other willpower it takes to make the mouth move. But “with your heart” signifies that you mean it and you feel it.
The essence of Christian worship is not mere ritualistic actions, or any other kind, but an inner, authentic valuing of God in the heart.
