“…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Have you ever heard someone refer to the musical part of a worship service as “the song service?” Growing up in the cotton field churches of South Arkansas, that’s the term that was most often used. In more recent nomenclature, it is often referred to as the “praise and worship time.” Granted, if our time of singing is mere entertainment and does not consist of praise and worship, and if it is anything less than a service to Christ, we have missed the mark! I think, however, that we who minister in song, and especially we who minister both in preaching and in song must recognize that praise and worship isn’t something that we do just as a preliminary to preaching, or to get ready for something else. Everything that we do…from start to finish is a type of praise and worship.
Does this mean that what we do as singers should not be entertaining? It certainly does not mean that. Should we never be humorous? Certainly, we should be if that is our gift (even God has a sense of humor—look at all of the unique people He created). “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” [Proverbs 17:21 KJV]. Nevertheless, even in our humor, what we do must always be Christ-honoring. Our God is holy, and our encounters with Him and His people must always revere His holiness. Whether singers, preachers, teachers, or musicians, we are all ministers of praise and worship! From start to finish, what we do—all that we do—is “for the glory of God.”
