READING THE BOOK OF First Chronicles CHAPTER Twentyfive.
Young and old alike, teacher as well as student, cast lots for their duties. (1 Chronicles 25:8 NIV)
We do not tolerate discrimination
REVIEW CHAPTER 25. – It would be very difficult to find another passage of Scripture to present a most beautiful picture of the importance of music in the worship of God. The so be it can only make us think more about how to redouble our efforts so that our worship to God have the best music possible. It is nothing less than an offense to God to place MUSIC ON THIRD PLACE with respect to music, our music lacks proper planning and testing, to allow any kind of music as long as it appeals to people’s sense of rhythm in Instead of appealing to their true religious feelings (CBMH).
- Discrimination is one of the great evils of today’s society. Do not accept discrimination in any form: a) say no to women discrimination, let’s give them the appropriate place, b) Say no to the discrimination of children or elders, respect their status and the limitations of their ages. Say no to the discrimination of people by their color, education, race, poverty or social status. No matter what reca, all come from the same parents, Adam and Eve, and we were all made by the same Creator.
- Churches must motivate our congregational praise to worship the Lord in the best posible way, everyone can participate in them, whether they have the gift music. The praises sung by soloists or bands enrich worship. However, we should avoid to create a show and praise the role of the participants. Let the “teachers and students”, participate in a spirit of worship and not exclusive of prominence.
Father who dwells throughout eternity and observes our every action. We ask you to give us discernment to distinguish between the holy and the profane. We also ask that when we go to worship in your house, we may enjoy your presence and your fire may purify us from all error and imperfection. We want to be pleasing in your presence. In the name of Jesus, amen.
