Singing in spirit"

(1/1)

A beautiful suuny morning today; amazing how a little sunshine can boost ones spirit  :)

Would like to know your thoughts as to how to do what these versus say ie sing in the spirit with one another if we have physically come out of the church. 

1 COR 14:15  "I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding." 

I see how this relates individually but the centre note takes you to the following versus:

COL 3:16    Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another  in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

EPH 5:19   Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs and making melody in your heart to the Lord.

Also, what would spiritual songs be?

PS: we have musicians on BT...maybe we could do an online meet and sing together  ;)

Great topic Diane , I love music, it was a big part of my childhood as my dad and brother were musically inclined. We all sang in our family, or tried to. ;D
I remember hearing this song by the New Seekers , called, Id Like To Teach
The World To Sing in Perfect Harmony. It was short and easy to learn and so it was one that I hummed or sang until a new song came about.

Well here we are so many years later singing a new song , this time in spirit.

Exo.15:2.The Lord is my strength and my SONG  :) and He has become my
salvation.

Rev.14:2 and I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters
and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of
harpists playing on their harps,3. and they were singing A NEW SONG 🎶
before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders.
No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.
Rev.5:9. And they sang a NEW SONG 🎶 saying worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people
for God, from every tribe, and language and people and nation,10 and you have
made them a kingdom and priests to our God and they shall reign on the earth.


This is music to my ears and there is no shortage of heavenly songs in the scriptures. God taught the angels to sing. I wonder what 10,000 angels sound
like together singing the praises of Jesus and our Father . I am so exceedingly
happy to hear ; Psalm 66:4. All the earth worships you and sing praises to you.
They sing praises to your name.( Jesus/ Jehovah) Selah.

Ray said he really liked Psalm 150, the last one.

Yes Pamela, I think a lot of us sang that song wishing it could be possible to live in harmony and peace.  As a child my grandparents took me to church when I visited them.  I enjoyed the hymn When the Roll Is Called (up yonder) and I wanted to be in the roll and be with Jesus.

Porter:
In addition to what Pamela said, I've always thought that spiritual songs signify a conversion of the heart. Like this conversion prophesized in Jeremiah.

Jer 24:7  I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD. They will be My people, and I will be their God because they will return to Me with all their heart.   

The interesting part about this to me is the fact that we can know the state of our heart, like Jesus did, by what we think or say when speaking of God. This parable explains the idea nicely because it puts the responsibility of receiving a new heart squarely on God in the same way Jeremiah 24:7 does.

Mat 12:33  Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

Mat 12:34  O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Mat 12:35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Mat 12:36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Mat 12:37  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

There was a time not long ago that I believed that it was up to me to "make the tree good". But now, maybe I'm learning a new song that speaks of the absolute sovereignty of God.

The idea of spiritual songs has always been of great interest to me, but I admit that I only understand it in part.
