THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
I won second prize in a singing contest once.
Actually, there were only two people entered.
The winner didn't even have to sing.
They heard me first, and awarded him first prize.
Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.
I'm so glad that the Bible says, "let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation." (Ps 95:1)
Shouldn't we sing and praise God for His salvation?
Upon our surrender to Jesus, our sins were "blotted out" and we received "refreshing ...from the presence of the Lord!" (Acts 3:19)
Once a friend said he saw me driving down the road, and I was "preaching away!"
I told him, "No, sir. I never preach in the car. However, I do sing along with gospel music on cd's."
People may think I'm a little "touched" when I'm driving down the road singing.
But I can't help but praise the Lord!
"At the cross, at the cross,
Where I first saw the Light,
And the burden of my sin rolled away!
It was there by faith,
I received my sight.
And now I am happy all the day!"
(Written by Ralph Hudson)
"I sing because there is an empty grave,
I sing because there is a power to save,
I sing because His love is real to me.
I sing because I know I'm not alone,
I sing because someday I'm going home,
Where I shall sing for all eternity!"
(Written by Squire Parsons)
