5 Stories From The Bible For Worship Leaders
Here are 5 stories from the Bible for worship leaders to read.
A Joyful Noise
A joyful noise can be vocals, a piano accompaniment, or any other form of music that is offered unto the Lord. Several times in Scripture we’re told to “Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth” (Psalm 100:1)! It doesn’t say it has to be a perfect noise…just as long as it’s perfectly acceptable to God. Who cares if you or your neighbor are a little off key…it is being sung unto the LORD our God and not unto men, so go ahead…“Make a joyful noise to the LORD.”
Shout to the Lord
When we worship God, some people really get caught up in it, and when they sing the word, “Hallelujah,” they almost shout it, so let’s also get caught up in worshiping our God with song and voice, and “With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD” (Psalm 98:6)! Does anyone on the planet have more reason to “make a joyful noise before…the LORD” than we do!?
Psalms and Hymns
Many of the Psalms were used in worship service and were put to music and incorporated into praising God. Apparently, not much has changed because in the New Testament church, the Apostle Paul said we should be “Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart” (Ephesians 5:19). Putting the Psalms into worship music is a great idea because we know the lyrics (Scripture) are absolutely true.
Exult Before Him
When we worship God in song and word, we are lifting up the name of God and attaching great value to His Holy Name…magnifying His name, so worship God with all your heart, and “Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the Lord; exult before him” (Psalm 68:4)! Sing back to God just how much He means to you and you’ll feel God’s pleasure, for He is enthroned on the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3).
A New Song
I’ve heard Christian musicians say that God put a song in their heart. Apparently it was there all the time, but it took God to draw it out. They can identify with the psalmist who said, “He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord” (Psalm 40:3). Our worship music should speak of the fear of the Lord, the very beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:1), and to “put their trust in the Lord.”
