Unlimited: Singing to God is Communicating with Him
Jul 10, 2019 1139
“May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great” (Psalm 138:5, NIV).
The time when Christians begin to sing in the ways of the Lord is when they first lose their burden at the foot of the Cross.
Believer, do you recollect the day when your fetters fell off? Do you remember the place when Jesus met you, and said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have blotted out as a cloud your transgressions, and as a thick cloud your sins; they shall not be mentioned against you any more for ever.”
Oh! what a sweet season is that when Jesus takes away the pain of sin. When the Lord first pardoned my sin, I was so joyous that I could scarce refrain from dancing. I thought on my road home from the house where I had been set at liberty, that I must tell the stones in the street the story of my deliverance. So full was my soul of joy, that I wanted to tell every snow-flake that was falling from heaven of the wondrous love of Jesus, who had blotted out the sins of one of the chief of rebels.
But it is not only at the commencement of the Christian life that believers have reason for song; as long as they live they discover cause to sing in the ways of the Lord, and their experience of his constant lovingkindness leads them to say, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” See to it, that you magnify the Lord this day. – Charles Spurgeon (adapted)
