Singing faith

RE Verse reading–Isaiah 5:1-13, 18-23 (day four)  “I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard” (vs 1)  One of the most obvious things about faith is that it sings.  It sings for the love of God.  It is nearly impossible for passionate love not to be expressed in song or verse.  Fall in love and some song on your radio/ipod will get you singing along.  For 150 years (and almost 150 ways) people at First Baptist Church have been singing TO the Lord, FOR the Lord.  It is part of who we are and always will be.  I got an email yesterday from a friend who is “re searching”the place of faith in his life.  He writes, “one of my most vivid memories from childhood is the hymn Just As I Am. . .as long as I have my mind, this song will be firmly lodged therein”  It is the same with all of us.  When we believe we sing.

  1. When I read your post today, it made me start singing the old gospel song “I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free. My eyes are on the sparrow and I know He watches me.” I think I remembered the words correctly, but you get the gist. More importantly it put a song in my heart and I will be singing it for a long time. Thanks for the reminder. Sometimes I forget to stop and remember the little things. What a wonderful Father we have!
