We sing a lot of songs at New Life, but the songs I like best are the ones we sing to God about God. In other words, songs that tell God just how great He is, how worthy He is, and how powerful He is. There are certainly other types of songs that are valuable for us as a fellowship.
There are songs we sing to God about His love for us. Those are nice.
There are songs we sing to God about our love for Him. Those are great, too.
There are songs we sing that celebrate what God has done or may do among us. I like them just fine.
There are prayerful songs, where we are asking God for miracles like healing and salvation. This type is my second favorite.
But there is no substitute for singing to God, about Him. It is the purest form of worship we can give God.
On our upcoming New Life worship project, we have several songs that fit into each of the above categories, but one of my favorites is Great I Am. Take a listen by clicking the link below and give me your thoughts.
