What’s Your Song?

KevinHParr“Sing to the Lord a new song.”  There is some excitement in these words from Psalm 98.  How can we make these words come alive in our worship at Cherry Street in 2013?  Jesus told us that true worshippers will worship in Spirit and in truth, but sometimes we miss an aspect of truth when we come to worship with our ‘church mask’ on.  We may cover up our true spirit, our true self, because we are afraid to let people get too close.  We don’t want them to know about our sin or guilt, and maybe even hide our dreams for fear of what others will think of who we really are.

You had an argument with your parents, you’re angry with your siblings or a friend, you’re not doing so well in school, people pick on you, you’re insecure about your looks… the list goes on.  When we spend more time together in close quarters (think of church camp or a retreat you’ve been on), these things come to the surface.  We find that there’s healing in letting our walls down and letting Christ (and our Christian brothers and sisters) in.  As our ‘church mask’ falls away, we enter into worship in a new way, in Spirit and in truth.  We sing a new song to God (or maybe an old song with a renewed spirit).  Let’s learn to live in that spirit of worship!

Just for fun: If your life were a song, what would it be called?  Here are the names of the top 10 songs this week on Billboard’s top 100.  Not sure my life’s song is on this list (though #6 is pretty close… ha, just kidding!).  How ‘bout you?  Please comment!

  3. Diamonds
  4. Ho Hey

  1. We need to remember that there is no masking our true selves from God. We can’t get help in dealing with our troubles if we hide them.
