Our church, Blackshear Place Baptist Church* (www.bpbc.org) located in Flowery Branch, Georgia, USA has an amazing 200 voice choir! Singing hymns and praises along with the choir and orchestra provides for a wonderful and worshipful experience for the large congregation at each worship service.
Psalm 147:1,7 (NKJV) – 1 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful. 7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God,
Psalm 150:6 (NKJV) – Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
God created us to sing. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit prods EVERY Christian to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise (Psalm 98:4 KJV).” The Bible teaches that there will be singing and praising in Heaven for an eternity. Can you imagine what a glorious blessing that will be? When we “Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving” here on earth we have just begun to experience what it will be like in our future inherited home prepared by the Lord Jesus. Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving indeed!!
Oh Holy Father, magnify our singing through the indwelling power of Your Holy Spirit as we Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving! May our Thanksgiving Praise and worship be pleasing to You our Savior and Redeemer! We love you Lord! We praise You Lord! You are Holy … the one and only! In the name of Jesus our Savior, Amen and Amen!
