Week 33: A New Song

Today’s Text: Psalms 96-98

Key Text: Psalm 96:1-2

“Sing to the LORD a new song; Sing to the LORD all the earth. Sing to the LORD, bless his name; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.”

Speaking of singing…

Did you catch that bit about it being a new song we are to sing?

I think there are times when the people of God should admit something – we keep on singing the same old song over and over again.

We read our favorite Bible passages – and leave the rest of the scriptures untouched.

We sing our favorite hymns – and forget there are all kinds of ways to “make a joyful noise unto the LORD.”

We stick to our cherished beliefs and attitudes – without asking God to open our eyes – our spirits – our hearts – to new ways of thinking and acting.

We do things the way we have always done them – forgetting God has said many times “Behold, I am doing a new thing!”

So, I offer this reminder – to myself as a minister – and to those who “have ears to hear” – let’s be brave enough, creative enough, and bold enough to really take the Psalmist’s call seriously:

“Sing to the LORD a new song…” wherever that may lead us.
