Matthew 11:28 Revised Standard
28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Philippians 2:9-11 New International Version (NIV)
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Psalm 95:1-6 New International Version (NIV)
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. 3 For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. 5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
Worship is a key component in the life of any person who chooses to follow Christ. When we worship the Lord, we fall into His grace. Singing songs of worship is a great way to bring your heart closer to God.
It is always a good time to sing and worship the Lord. In fact, you don’t have to wait until you go to church to sing worship songs. Here is something that I like to do: When I wake up in the morning, I put on a good Christian music station or pop a worship CD into my CD player and sing along with the song. I am comforted by the music and when I sing along, somehow it brings me to a place where I feel uplifted and ready to take on the challenges of the day.
Try singing along with Christian videos and music on the radio or CD. If you don't feel comfortable singing out loud, perhaps you could hum along or listen as the music and lyrics inspire you, bringing you closer to the Lord just by your participation. I think you will be amazed at how vibrant you feel when you worship the Lord.
Many blessings to you this day and forever,
Rev. M. C. Bertrand
