Have you ever wondered if the Bible really tells you what you are to do
as the Music Worship Leader?
Well, here are your answers and there is a little quiz as you study the passages.
1 Chronciles 15:16
2 Chronicles 16:4-42
1. Verses 4-7 Who began having choral music, why and where?
2. Verses 8-12 What was to be in their songs? Are these subjects
in our songs? Name some hymns that reflect the subject for each scripture passage.
3. Verses 23-30 What do these awesome verses tell about God Almighty. Do ours hymns tell of God? Names some that do.
4. Verse 29 What does this verse tell us about what we should wear at church?
Do our congregations wear clothes that honor God, and if no, why not?
Should you have an understanding with the soloist and choir members about what they wear when they sing?
5. Verses 31-33 How did all nature respond and what did they do
and why? Does nature respond now when we worship? What about that?
6. Verses 34-36 Make a list of why God's people should praise Him as seen in these verses.
7. Verse 36 Oh, my, do your people shout, "Amen" and praise the Lord when they are worshipping?
8. Verse 42 What about instruments being played in the service?
Shouldn't these scriptures inspire us in the way we approach the worship services from planning to directing them? Shouldn't we have praise and joy in our hearts and on our faces before we even begin the service and then as we lead it? How about all week long? Doesn't verse 11 remind us to have worship daily?
Should our services reflect and be built on these phrases from these verses?
Give thanks to the Lord.
Make known all His deeds.
Speak of all His wonders.
Let the heart be glad.
Seek the Lord, seek His face.
Remember His deeds.
Sing TO THE LORD.
Ascribe to the Lord glory due His name.
Bring and offering and come before Him.
Worship the Lord in holy array.
Tremble before Him
Now, this tells you about the worship service! To whom it is intended, why we should worship, who we should worship, what our actions should be, and what the results should be.
God bless you as you....GO AND DO LIKE SAME!

2 Chron 5:12
