True Melody

Book of Ephesians

A Sermon on Ephesians 5:19

addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, (ESV)

The characteristic of Christian music; the importance of melody; music in worship must never be sentimental; the understanding is always involved in the action of the Christian; the mind and the heart are engaged; the result is true melody; worship must never be separated from the preaching of the Word; words are more important than the tune; a concern for the whole body; and a need for a sense of balance.
