Sing Unto the Lord

The Church of Christ on McDermott Road where we attend brought 95 youth, grades 3rd-12th to participated in Leadership Training for Christ.  With so many great events to chose from, many of the kids are able to participate in multiple events. 

The video above is our 7th -12th grade chorus.  Abigail is center screen, front row. Thy sounded wonderful, I apologize that it isn't the best recording. 

If you've ever wondered why in the new testament God never included instruments in worship to Him, I think listening to this you will understand why.  Every parent in the room can pick out the beautiful sound of their child's voice, just like God know each of our voices.  The joy I get as a mom hearing one of my kids sing can't compare to the joy God must feel when He hears His children praising Him with the talent He gave them. I think that's why all New Testament examples of worship are singing and not playing.  

Sing and making melody with your heart to the Lord. Ephesians 5:19
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.  Colossians 3:16
