1 Samuel 16:17-18
So Saul said to his attendants, “Find someone who plays well and bring him to me.” One of the servants answered, “I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the harp. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him.”
You know people who can’t carry a tune in a bucket. Maybe you’re even one of them. Or maybe the only thing you can play is the radio. Fortunately God has called us to make a joyful noise to Him in worship. Our ability does not matter so long as we honor God in our worship.
There are others who have tremendous musical abilities though. These people have the ability to cause others to worship regardless whether they are worship leaders or not.
When beautiful music is played or sung – and it doesn’t even have to be a church song – it gives everyone a chance to reflect on God’s majesty.
We all have different preferences in music and that is great because God made us all different. This also means that we have many different ways to worship God in music.
Psalm 150 is one of my favorite Psalms as it describes many ways that we can worship God. Those with the gift of music can lead us into worship in many different ways.
