Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Here Paul's describes music as a way of communicating to one another as well as praising God. The words and the music together are more meaningful somehow than the words alone. I am still amazed when I think about music at this level. What a beautiful, grace-filled gift from God!
Holy Lord, thank you for the gift of music. It is a mysterious, wonderful thing to be moved by music. I am so thankful! Amen
