Can singing truly transform your worship experience and draw you closer to God? This is the profound question we explore in our latest podcast episode. Jon and Kate delve into the biblical roots and spiritual power of singing in Christian worship, revealing why this practice is far more than just a tradition. They highlight how scriptures like Psalm 149:1 and Ephesians 5:18-19 command believers to sing, not only as an act of praise but also as a means to uplift and unite the congregation.

Throughout the episode, They reflect on compelling biblical stories that illustrate the transformative power of worship through song. One notable example is Jesus singing with His disciples after the Last Supper, as described in Matthew 26:30. This act of singing in a moment of solemnity underscores the significance of worship through song even in challenging times. Similarly, Acts 16 recounts how Paul and Silas sang hymns while imprisoned, demonstrating the ministerial power of singing to uplift and inspire, even in dire circumstances.

Jon and Kate delve into the inherent inclination of humans to worship through song, a practice that spans generations and cultures, firmly rooted in the Bible. Romans 15:11 calls all peoples, including Gentiles, to "praise the Lord" and "extol him," indicating that singing is a universal expression of worship that transcends cultural and temporal boundaries. By fostering a vibrant culture of singing within the church, we can build a stronger, more unified community that collectively glorifies God.

By thinking about worship from a biblical perspective, They aim to inspire you to cultivate a vibrant culture of singing within your church community, fostering unity and glorification of God. Engage with them by submitting your questions and join the conversation on how these insights can elevate your own worship practices and spiritual growth.

As they reflect on these insights, they WOULD LIKE all to consider the profound significance of singing in your own worship practices. Whether you are singing in a corporate setting or in the solitude of your personal devotion, remember that singing is a powerful expression of your faith and devotion to God. Let the songs of praise and redemption resonate in your heart, uplifting your spirit and drawing you closer to jesus.

We hope this exploration of the power and purpose of singing in Christian worship inspires you to embrace this practice with renewed fervor and understanding. As you join in this journey, may your worship be transformed, your faith deepened, and your community strengthened through corportate singing.

What our listeners have to say

I enjoy listening to the Pleasing God Podcast for many reasons.

First of all, I believe that the content is brought forth in a straightforward, practical manner that all points me to knowing God better and serving Him in my daily walk.

No pretenses, no punches pulled, always drawing me back to God’s word and thus to Him. In a soft plea from thankful hearts to help me in my sanctification that is Gods will for my life, in my marriage, parenthood, and my church as a fellow laborer in Christ.

The wonderful ease of the conversations almost appears to be to just me, like I am in the room participating in the conversation.

Joy filled, challenging, comforting, and encouraging one another to love and good works.

J. Vernon McGee used to say where the “rubber meets the road”, the Pleasing God Podcast is just that, a help in practically applying the word of truth to my heart in daily living when I am so prone to break traction in my own weakness.

Kirk D.

Here’s the question: with so many Christian podcasts, which ones are the best ones to listen to. Many would say Ligonier’s renewing your Mind, Grace To You, and Truth for Life. While all of those podcasts are wonderful with great teaching, there’s one element that’s missing: the real, local church.

Pastor Jon gives real practical advice taken from real biblical principals in a real, local context.

I can’t recommend this podcast enough.
