Sing!

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name. For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. (Psalm 100, NRSV)

Come into the presence of the Lord singing!

Make music before the Lord, let us worship Him with gladness and make a joyful noise!

Give thanks always to the Lord for He is good and His love endures forever!

He will always be faithful to His promises and we should bless His name!

Make a joyful noise!

161231O sing to the LORD a new song,
for he has done marvelous things.
His right hand and his holy arm
have gotten him victory.
The LORD has made known his victory;
he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the victory of our God.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre,
with the lyre and the sound of melody.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD.
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
the world and those who live in it.
Let the floods clap their hands;
let the hills sing together for joy
at the presence of the LORD, for he is coming
to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with equity.
(Psalm 98, NRSV)

As we get ready to ring in the New Year and celebrate, let us remember why we can celebrate.

God made a way for us to be with Him for eternity and because of that we should praise His name and sing to Him.

Make a joyful noise throughout all of the earth for the Lord has done marvelous things.

So Sing praise to God!

Sing to the Lord a song and make a joyful noise and celebrate all He has done for you!

Joy

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come into his presence with singing.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is he that made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him, bless his name.
For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
(Psalm 100, NRSV)

This is a great passage of scripture because it takes away the excuses of those who say they can’t sing!

We are to make a joyful noise to the Lord!

It doesn’t say a beautiful, or pretty, or good sounding noise. It says a joyful noise.

As my pastor use to say, “If you sing well, sing loud because God likes to hear a beautiful sound. And if you don’t sing well, wing even louder, because really likes a joyful noise!”

So sing and be joyful, because God has given you love!

Sing praises

Clap your hands, all you peoples;
shout to God with loud songs of joy.
For the LORD, the Most High, is awesome,
a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
the pride of Jacob whom he loves.
God has gone up with a shout,
the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the king of all the earth;
sing praises with a psalm.
God is king over the nations;
God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
he is highly exalted.
(Psalm 47, NRSV)

Sing praises to God who is our King!

He is king over all the earth. So we should, therefore, praise Him and exalt His name.

So sing praises to our King!

And in the words of a former pastor of mine, “If you sing good sing loud because God likes a joyful singer. And if you don’t sing well sing even louder to annoy the person next to you because God said to make a joyful noise!”
