10 Upbeat Worship Songs For 2017
This year I have made it a point to lead more upbeat, celebratory songs with my church. There is a place for reverence in church music. A place for stillness. There is also a place for loud declarations of praise.
I want to be faithful to the Word of God which calls us to:
“Sing joyful to the Lord, you righteous,
it is fitting for the upright to praise Him” (Psalm 33:1)
“Sing aloud to the God our strength,
shout for joy to the God of Jacob!” (Psalm 81:1)
“Praise God in His Sanctuary” (Psalm 150:1)
“Praise Him for His acts of power,
Praise Him for His surpassing greatness” (Psalm 150:2)
I am not naturally an exuberant person but I have so much to celebrate. I have been saved and redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. My life has been transformed. My eternity is secure. I have the very Spirit of the living God within me. In a lifetime I couldn’t sing enough songs of praise.
I want my life to be marked by joyful exclamations of the power of God. As a Worship Pastor I want the same for my church.
