TOPIC: SING UNTO THE LORD
TEXT: PSALM 92:1-5
1 (A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day.) It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
Key Verse: “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High” (Psalm 92:1).
A very important and popular means of praising and giving thanks unto God is singing worship songs. The Lord has blessed some people with talents to compose songs of praise.
One example is a Christian lady named Fanny Crosby. Though she was blind, she received inspiration to pen down lyrics of some of the melodious and great songs that we sing today in church.
God desires and also commands us to sing praises to Him. Unfortunately, many young people today have given in to the influence of worldly songs that glorify the flesh and Satan. They write, sing and dance to worldly songs that corrupt and turn the heart of the people away from God’s righteous standard.
You must beware of the trend of joining other boys and girls who are engaged in worldly pursuit. Cultivate the attitude of singing scripture-based songs that glorify God. The main purpose of singing is to exalt, praise, honour and glorify God.
If you are used to singing worldly songs, pray for cleansing through the blood of Jesus. Then read your Bible every day, meditate on its message and receive inspiration to write and sing songs of praise unto the Lord.
Prayer: Lord, inspire me to always sing songs of praise unto You.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
