Scriptures: Psalm 32, Job 38:7, Luke 2:14, 1 John 1:9


Martin Luther was exactly right when he said, "Next to the word of God, music deserves the highest praise." In the Bible, the longest book is dedicated to the hymns of the Hebrews. Both Judaism and Christianity are faiths filled with songs. There are so many references to music and singing in the Psalms that they have been called "Israel's hymnbook". In fact, the word "Psalm" actually means "song" referring to a song sung to the accompaniment of a psaltery, an ancient stringed instrument. In this message, Dr. Merritt walks through songs that express our failures and faults to God.


"When you confess your sin, you not only admit your sin, but you agree with God it really is sin. You take God's side against your sin." --Dr. Merritt
