Our Pastor is not the best singer. When training new audio volunteers, Rule Number 1 is mute Pastor as soon as the song begins! However, he doesn’t hesitate to make a joyful noise! In college, being surrounded by wonderful musicians, we didn’t make a peep unless we were sure it was going to be a beautiful noise. While I’m sure God appreciates our striving for excellence, especially when serving Him, I know that He loves our joyful noises just as much when directed His way.
We are called as children of God to sing His praises, and what better time than at Christmas? The music is extremely beautiful, and most of it is songs we’ve sung since we were children. Don’t stop on Christmas day, though! Continue singing! Lift up your praises every day to the One who sends His son to die for our sins.
“Sing to him; sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works!”
I Chronicles 16:9
