Tell God You Love Him By Singing

“Sing to God a thanksgiving hymn, play music on your instruments to God” (Psalm 147:7 MSG).

When you express your love for God, it’s called worship. One way you can express your love is by singing to him.

You’ve probably noticed that music and love go together because music comes from the heart. It’s not something you do intellectually; it’s something that comes out of your soul and your emotions.

And because of that there are many love songs in the world. It’s also the reason more songs have been written about Jesus Christ than any other topic in the world. Nothing even comes in as a close second.

Christianity is a singing faith. Why? Because it’s not about religion! It’s about a love affair; it’s about a relationship with God—God loves you so much that He sent His Son to die for you and He wants you to love Him back.

Nothing will make you more aware of God’s love and God’s presence in your life than singing and praising. I know you may be thinking, “But you don’t understand. I can’t sing.” That’s okay, because the Bible says, “Make a joyful noise” (Psalm 66:1 KJV). You can do that. When we go to football games or when somebody is getting married we make a joyful noise. So just let it out! You don’t have to hit the right note; you just have to make a joyful noise.

Since you can sing anywhere, you can express your love of God anywhere. That means you can worship in the shower; you can worship when you’re working in the garden; you can worship washing dishes; or you can worship driving to work.

How often do you sing your thanks and love to God? Daily? Regularly? Occasionally?

If you really think about what God has done in your life, you won’t be able to help yourself. Your praise for God will burst forth and your worship will flow to God.
