Ephesians 5:15-19

Have you ever simply spoken the words to a song or hymn? It is amazing how the lyrics of a song can comfort and encourage someone who is in a spiritual crisis.

One of the things I will miss the most from my time serving here at FBCL is our Thursday morning Oasis Ministry. Most of our attendees are going through a very dark time, suffering from Alzheimer’s and extreme memory loss. The amazing thing, though, is that almost every participant still remembers songs of our faith, like Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, and Victory in Jesus. As we sing and make music to our Lord, powerful truths, doctrines and concepts are etched deep within our spirit, our soul, our being. The mark is so powerful, in fact, that not even a disease like Alzheimer’s can destroy it.

In your worship moments today, take time to sing, read the lyrics, or listen to a song, hymn or spiritual song.
