Daily Nugget

    Monday, June 10th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

The singing of a hymn should be a great experience for us—it can be a testimony, a praise, an invitation to others. Someone has written some interesting comparisons on the hymns we sing:
* We sing Sweet Hour of Prayer and content ourselves with ten or fifteen minutes a day.
* We sing Oh, For a Thousand Tongues, and don’t use the one we have for praise.
* We sing There shall be Showers of Blessings but don’t come when it’s raining.
* We sing Blest Be the Tie that Binds and let the least little offense sever.
* We sing Onward Christian Soldiers and wait to be drafted into His service.
* We sing Serve the Lord With Gladness and gripe about all that we have to do.
* We sing I Love to Tell the Story and never mention it.
The apostle Paul writes these words in Ephesians 5:19-20 , “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Let us let the words of the songs motivate us and be more than mere words.

God, forgive us when we allow Your words to have no effect on us. In doing so, we have no impact on those around us. Amen.
