Hymn-writer Keith Getty gives us five reasons why we should all sing loudly in church.
1. We are commanded to sing.
Paul commands believers in Ephesians 5 to "be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart." Throughout scripture, we can see that singing was a part of everyday life.
2. Singing together completes our joy.
Part of our joy as followers of Christ comes from the privilege of sharing with others. What better way to share that joy than to join together in song?
3. Singing is an expression of brotherhood and unites generations.
People from all tongues and nations singing together gives us a small glimpse of what Heaven must be like.
4. We are what we sing.
Singing affects all parts of our lives. We even set scripture verses to music to help us memorize them.
5. Singing bears testimony to our faith.
A group of believers singing together is a powerful witness to others.
