Read the New Testament with me through the Project 345 reading plan.
Context: Paul has been instructing the church in Ephesus to be careful and to live rightly. They must not be drunk with wine, but be filled with the Spirit, which leads to worship.
Ephesians 5:19b-20 “Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Observations: Our hearts should always have a worship posture. Thankfulness should be overflowing to God from our lives through declarative praise music.
Application: Today, I want to open my eyes to see God around me. I want to allow the Spirit to fill my heart with music and to overflow with genuine praise songs.
Stop for a few minutes and let the Spirit fill your heart with songs of praise. How would it feel to live with this mindset?
