Streaming and Singing

“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord…”   Ephesians 5:19

From the earliest chapters of the Book of Genesis, we discover that music has been around for a long time.  In Genesis 4, Jubal is listed as the creator of the organ and harp.  Many musical instruments are listed in the Psalms.  Perhaps the pinnacle instrument for music is the human voice.  The Lord desires to hear His people praise Him.  Music and singing are important to the Lord.  Psalms 108:1, A Song or Psalm of David, says:  “O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.”  Perhaps you enjoy singing.  With a terrific voice, or even an unsteady voice, we can offer praise to the Lord in song.  Godly music can set your life on a good note for rest of your day.

I hope that you pick up the hymnal or follow the congregational song leader and participate in the congregational singing at your church.  There is nothing like a body of believers collectively lifting their voices to the Lord in a church service.  That is what the passage in Ephesians 5 is speaking about.  The music portions of the church service are refreshing to our souls.

Could we bottle up the music at church and enjoy it at other places?  Yes.  You can sing along with good music CDs.  In fact, with the internet, there are now many good radio stations that offer conservative, Bible based music that you can listen to and sing along with.  We can stream on the internet good songs today.  Mobile devices offer many of these same options.

Free internet radio you may enjoy, depending on your preferences, could be found at:

As with any resource; while recommended, not everything may be endorsed.  The point is, there are many good options in which you can continue to be edified with spiritual, helpful, God-honoring music.  Be encouraged – sing to the Lord.  Sing along with your favorite songs wherever you are today.
