Sing to the Lord a New Song


Psalm 149:1-3 commands us to praise Godís name and to sing a new song and to the Lord.
Praise: magnify, adore, value, revere

New: pristine, fresh, youthful, uncharted

Song: melody, tune, poetry, anthem, rhapsody

How will you sing your new song?
Is my new song musical?

Will it be singing new songs of worship? Contemporary worship music maybe strange to my ear, but will I listen for the passionate praise of the King?

Will it be singing traditional, time honored, hymns in a new way. These songs have been memorized through the years. Will I meditate on each phrase, so it is sung with new fervor and fresh love for the Savior?

Is my new song an activity?
    While the psalm indicates verbal musical praise, we can also sing to the Lord with the life he has given us.
  • Will I go out of my way to be kind to the cranky neighbor?
  • Will I speak to the beggar on the street, asking if he knows Jesus?
  • Will I praise God for his faithfulness, in the hearing of those around me?
  • Will I learn the waiterís name, and ask if I can pray for him when I pray for my meal?
  • Will I step out of my comfort zone to serve at the local soup kitchen or homeless shelter?
  • Will I serve regularly joyfully at my church, in the childrenís church, as a greeter or an usher?

Each act of selflessness, done in fresh love and enthusiasm, is seen as a gift to God, and when observed by others, points them to Christ.



You may not be a singer, but your life is the song you are given. Keep it new and undimmed by time. Each believerís life is a testament. Do everything in praise of our Savior.

Singing our new song is a choice. ďSome days there wonít be a song in your heart. Sing anyway.Ē (Attributed to Emory Austin)

Whether you eat or drink, whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.
(Read: 1 Corinthians 10:31, Colossians 3:17, 1 Peter 4:11)
