DO YOU KNOW THE LYRICS?
(Always Sing The Right Songs)

👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

📖 TO THE BIBLE
2 Corinthians 6:16 “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.””

◀ LET’S TALK
Some Christians sing the wrong songs as a result of ignorance of God’s Word. Such songs have created in them a certain kind of unbelief that’s difficult to cure. That a song is melodious or its beat is so captivating that it makes you feel emotional doesn’t necessarily make it right. As long as it doesn’t communicate the realities of the Gospel as it applies to the new creation, it’s the wrong song for you and singing it could rob you of your faith and effectiveness in the things of God.

And what agreement has the temple of God with idols For you are the temple of the living God

For example, when someone sings, “Let your glory fill this house; let your presence fill my heart….” Such a song doesn’t get anywhere; God doesn’t respond to it. Only your emotions respond. If you ask Him to fill your heart with His presence, when will He answer? That’s an Old Testament request! Being born again, you’re already the temple of Almighty God; His presence already fills your heart! He’s made His home in you. You don’t need to ask for what you already have. Don’t sing because you want to “feel” His presence; no! He’s in you, and you’re in Him, whether or not you feel it.

God’s Word is God. Once the lyrics of your songs aren’t consistent with His Word of truth, they’re just your words. However, He’ll bless you for daring to believe, as He said to David: “…You did well to have it in your heart to build a temple for my Name” (1 Kings 8:18 NIV). He blessed David for thinking about it at all. So, when you worship with the wrong songs, He’ll bless you for thinking about it, but there’re much greater blessings in His truth.

You need to understand what the Word of God has brought you, and when you get a hold of it, don’t lose it because of your feelings; simply because you feel far or near. Never relate to Him or sing to Him according to your feelings; His Word is the basis for our relationship with Him. Therefore, sing, preach, pray and live the Word. Praise God!

DON’T STAY A DAY WITHOUT THE WORD

Don’t Be Left Out!!!
