Hallelujah is a Hebrew word meaning praise God.

Scripture

Ephesians 5:18b-20 CSB “Be filled by the Spirit: speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music with your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

In Ephesians, Paul reminded people of Jesus' love for all of us. He also reminded the Ephesians to be full of kindness, love, and praises to God. He reminded them to think of God, to be filled with God’s Spirit, and to sing songs of praise together. We can do those things, too!

It is amazing to sing and make music with other people and be reminded of God's amazing love. Recently, we haven't been able to sing in church, but we can still praise God anytime and anywhere The Bible is filled with examples of how we can praise God. The book of Psalms is often considered the songbook of the Bible. Take a look and see if you recognize any lyrics to songs you sing in the book.

Pray + Bless

Pray: Dear Jesus, thank you for music. Thank you for your Spirit. Thank you for the music of laughter. Thank you for the music of our voices talking and singing. Thank you for all the sounds of creation. Help us to praise you so others can know you, too. Amen.
