"...admonishing one another in psalms and
hymns and spiritual songs, singing
with grace in your hearts
to the Lord."
I am passionate about singing and keeping the great hymns of the faith in the body of Christ. There is a tremendous legacy of biblical knowledge that we are in danger of losing if we allow these hymns slip from our use. One reason I love these hymns is that they are full of great theology, poetry, with rich spiritual metaphors and blessings.
Let me suggest that as you meet with your families for private worship that you utilize our hymn book and sing together as a family some of these great hymns. Your children will be blessed and they will never forget the hymns that they learn in your family worship. This will also enhance our singing at the Lord's house on Sundays. Let us sing joyfully and heartily for the glory of our great God and King! He is worthy to be praised.
It is difficult to be discouraged or defeated when our hearts are overflowing with the joy of the Lord. God bless our Berean family!
Yours in Christ,
