Day 11-Joyful Noise

Our   church  services are marked  with  loud  joyful  music. Everybody enjoys praising and   making  melody  from  the  heart. Music   spills  out  on to  the  street through  the   sound  system.Our   worship  team  consists  of    talented  musicians  and singers,  of  which  I  am  a  part. Our  Pastor  himself  is  a   musician and    composer .

The  language  of  music  is  holy. The  Bible  is  full  of   music  . David,  the  temple musicians and  believers  in  the  early  church  encouraged  each other with psalms  and hymns. In  the  Bible  we  are  told  about  the continuous   worship  and celestial  music  before  the throne  of   God. And  the  amazing  thing  is  that with  modern  equipment  astronomers  and  scientists  have  recorded  the  music  of  the  stars and  heavenly bodies. I  posted  a  video recording  sometime back. The  Psalmist  wrote  about  the  stars  in  the  sky  and  hills  , mountains  and  forests  making  a  joyful  noise  in praise  of   God. The  symphony  of  the  stars  have  been  captured  , who   knows  someone  may  record  the  hills  and   mountains  clapping for  joy, as  the  Bible says.

God speaks  to  people  in the  language  of  music. This  Sunday  morning a  young  Air  Force  officer  was  passing  by  our  church.  it  was  his  first  day in  the  city.  Maybe  he felt  lonely in a  srange  place .He heard  the  strains  of  worship   music  and  it  beckoned  him  to  come  inside  and  experience  the  presence  of God. Awesome  isn' t  it.

Psalm 98:4
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

How are You Amrita? Today in our news there was information about Muslim protests and aggression in India - it is conflict caused by film about Mohammed. I'm hope, that in Your area there is calm.

The violence spreads with people being incited. I heard of incidents in South India. Don' t know if there were any in North India where I live. But at times like these Christians and churches are under threat as they identify us with westerners. Thank you for your prayers dear Zim
