Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
The worship service at church, that time set aside for the musical expression of our love for who God is and what He has done, is of vital importance in our walk with the Lord.
We are to worship God as individuals, but we are also instructed to worship together with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We should be united in purpose, encouraging one another through the praise of our King.
Note that our worship begins with Him, as we give permission to the Lord to allow His word to richly dwell within us. More than knowledge in our heads, we have His living word in our hearts, which leads to true worship as an honest response to His majesty.
Let's sing to God often. Let’s express His truths in song. May His word and His Spirit live within you and I, as we share in this joyous endeavor with the Body of Christ.
