“…speaking to one another with psalms,
hymns, and songs from the Spirit.
Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,”
Ephesians 5:29 (NIV)
What will the music of heaven be like? Classical? Ballads? I am not sure, but it will be spectacular beyond description. The instruments and singers will thrill us and captivate our minds as they play and sing to the glory of God. Also, we will join in the singing and spend part of our time there in musical activity. Isaiah give a description of the joyful music in the following words:
“But only the redeemed will walk there,
and those the Lord has rescued will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
Isaiah 35:9-10 (NIV)
Do you find this topic of enduring interest? If you are musically talented, an avid listener to music, or very not musically interested now, if you belong to the Lord you will indeed find delight in the music of heaven and participate with angels in singing the eternal praise of God.
Be thankful for this and follow the apostle Paul’s advice in our verses for today and participate in singing to each other in church, singing when in your home and offer it all to the Lord with joy and thanksgiving.
