Singing is more than just a physical action. Christian singing is heart-felt worship to our God. In Ephsians 5, Paul teaches us five ways to include our hearts and minds to sing worshipfully to our Lord and Savior.
Christians are singing people. We do it in almost every one of our gathering. For most of us, we were never taught why and how. In this new sermon series, we are learning from Scripture how singing transforms our lives, our church and the world.
The ending of a story always determines how good that story is. In God’s story, He has the most perfect ending with His glory being displayed and His people fully restored with Him in His presence. With this future reality in sight, Christ’s followers must persevere in the present and must invite others who are thirsty to come to the King.
While He was on earth, Jesus announced that the kingdom of God was at hand. Yet when He was raised from the dead and returned back to the Father, the apostles did not go with Him. With our eyes opened to the final act of God’s story, it is easy to lose sight of God’s purpose for us in this world. God is continuing His redemption mission here on earth. And His church, the ordinary, Spirit-empowered followers of Christ, is His Plan A and there is no Plan B.
After 400 years of silence, Jesus Christ entered into the world in flesh to live the perfect life that we cannot live and to die the death that we all deserve to die. He was the long-awaited fulfillment of the promised Redeemer. Many walked and knew Him yet very few believed in Him. He made a way for us to be reconciled with the Father through His death and resurrection.
