How music played a part in the Bible
Music has always been a big part of many religious and cultural traditions all over the world, and the Bible is no different. In the Bible, music has a big role to play in a lot of different situations, like when people are happy, sad, or trying to get a spiritual message across.
There are many references to music and singing in the Bible, and songs are a big part of both the Old and New Testaments. For example, the books of Psalms in the Old Testament have many references to singing, like “Sing unto the Lord a new song” (Ps. 96:1) and “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (Ps. 150:6). In many of these passages, music is used to show God how happy and thankful we are. This shows that music can be a way to pray and worship.
There are also several examples in the New Testament, such as when Jesus and his disciples sang a hymn at the Last Supper (Matthew 26:30) and when the angel of the Lord said, “Peace to all people on earth who please God” while “the sound of their singing” was heard (Luke 2:13–14). These passages show that music can be a powerful way to connect with God and share spiritual messages.
In the end, music played a big part in the Bible. Music has been an important part of Biblical tradition for hundreds of years, whether it is used to show happiness and gratitude or to share spiritual messages. This is still true today.
How music spreads God’s word and shows how great He is
Sharing God’s Word through music can be a powerful and meaningful way to honor His glory. From traditional hymns to Christian rock, music can speak to our souls and help us understand how powerful God’s love is in a million different ways. Music can open our hearts and minds to new ideas and make it easier to hear what God has to say.
When we hear these songs, we can relate to the words and figure out what they’re trying to say. We can also raise our voices together to thank and praise God. When we sing the words, we remember His promises and how much He loves us. Music can also help us feel better when we’re upset and remind us to be grateful and keep our faith.
Because of this, praising God through music is a big part of the Christian faith. It lets us tell Him how thankful and loved we are, and it lets us honor and praise His name. Music can also help us understand the hard parts of the Bible and remember what God wants us to learn.
Through music, we can honor God’s glory, show our faith, and spread His Word. We can feel the love, peace, and hope that comes from our relationship with God when we praise and thank Him.

Psalm 150, says, “Praise him with the sound of the trumpet; praise him with the psaltery and harp.” Colossians 3:16, says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and rebuking one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” In the end, it doesn’t matter if we use instruments or not, as long as we use our music to praise God.
