"Music to God's Ears"
November 28, 2006Email to a FriendPrint
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD. Psalm 150:6
"That's music to my ears," says the mechanic as the once-silent engine whirs into action without a cough or a sputter.
"That's music to my ears," says the construction foreman as pounding hammers work rhythmically to erect a new structure.
"That's music to my ears," says the teacher as a struggling student reads a story flawlessly.
As Christians we believe that everything we do in faith brings glory to Christ's name. Everything done to His glory brings praise and thanksgiving to our God. Surely then all the sounds of the working Christian are beautiful music to God, for He rejoices in the multitudinous ways His people praise Him by what they think, say, and do.
"But I'm no musician," you say. Yet Christians across the world make beautiful music as they unite their talents and abilities to praise God. How can we add to the symphony? By sharing the Good News of Jesus with others. As we do this, we add new dimensions to the praise and worship of our God.
Listen to those around you. Join your song to theirs in one great chorus. "Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!"
PRAYER: Dear God, I dedicate all that I do to Your name. May it add new sounds to glorify You; for Jesus; sake. Amen.
