"Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Ephesians 5:19-20).
Sometimes I wonder, why does God want Christians to sing to him?
Today, I received a little insight into the answer from an unlikely source. While listening to the local classic rock radio station, I heard a man singing the praises of cocaine. Then it dawned on me: People sing about what they love. Drug addicts sing the praises of cocaine. Christians sing the praises of their Lord. God gave his people permission to express in music what is in their hearts.
