Meron tayong singing problem, kasi meron tayong worship problem. At kung meron tayong worship problem, meron tayong heart problem. The whole Story of God is the story of God redeeming his people - to be a singing people for him.
We have to spend time to talk about congregational singing. We spend about 25-30 minutes of our worship service in singing. The rest is prayer, Scripture reading, and sermon. But we seldom take time to reflect why we sing and why it matters.
To serve us, to glorify God - 'yan ang life mission ng Panginoong Jesus. At tayo rin na sinasabing tagasunod niya, yun din ang life mission natin, hindi pwedeng iba, hindi pwedeng to serve ourselves, to glorify ourselves, but to serve others, to glorify God. Jesus came and lived a perfectly righteous life, and died and rose again para ano? To rescue us from ourselves so that we may live for others and for God.
