Speaking of Bubble gum and peanut butter

January 15, 2010 — Leave a comment

I have often wondered if the difference between merely rote learning of God’s word and teaching scripture through worshipful song might affect the way a believer ‘digests and assimilates’ the bread, meat and milk of the Word for growth and health in Christ, in the same way gastric juices in the tracts of the human body convert food to energy.
We become not merely legal, literal ‘experts’of the Word, but submitted, worshiping singers of praise–whose song “breaks up” the spiritual content of God’s Word and flower it into our hearts, minds, souls and lives.

[paraphased from Jack Hayford’s Manifest Presence]

“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord. Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.” Psalm 95:1

“I set Your instructions to music and sing them as I walk this pilgrim way.” Psalm 119:54 [The Message]
