The Bible on Praise and Worship Music

worship.jpg

There are many churches across America that conduct praise and worship services in a manner that they believe to be the only way to display reverence to the Lord. This usually translates into a service in which a number of displays of praise are understood to be restricted. Such restrictions include clapping, waving the hands, shouting, the beating of tambourines, and individuals rising to their feet independently of the rest of the congregation. Although a more relaxed praise known as "contemporary" praise and worship music services is becoming more popular, they're still replete with many of the same restriction in a milder form.

It may seem perfectly logical to assume that if one is to properly reverence God, he must be quiet, reserved, and stiff in his presence. However, man's reasoning is often incorrect when it comes to spiritual matters. Many true believers are willing to admit such a truth and are swift to declare that it's for this reason that God gave an instruction manual--the Bible. Why then are so many of the Bible's scriptures on praise and worship music being ignored? If God wants a quiet, robotic, and stiff worship, why does one read, "make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth. Make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praises. Sing unto the Lord with the harp, with noise before the Lord, the King. Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands, let the hills be joyful together" (Psalm 98:4-8).

Again, one reads, "...praise God in his sanctuary...Praise him with the sound of the trumpet. Praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel (hand drum) and dance. Praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon loud cymbals. Praise him upon the high sounding cymbals" (Psalm 150:5).

God is a Father to those who have believed on his Son Jesus. Would not any father be frustrated with a son that gives praise and worship in a monotone voice? Would he not want his son to make praise and worship music that that pleases him?

The scriptures above are not to be understood as commanding loud and action-filled praise every time one offers praise and worship the Lord. Sometimes, believers do well to be silent before God's presence as there's a right and wrong time for practically everything (KJV, Ecclesiastes 3:8). However, when a joyful noise can never be made in praise and worship music offered to God, one may question if there's obedience to the scriptures that command such praise. True believers are not content with obeying only some of God's word. They submit to every word that proceeded from the mouth of their Lord (KJV, Matthew 4:4). Obedience is true reverence and worship.
