Ephesians 5:18b-20

but be filled by the Spirit,  speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music in your hearts to the Lord,  always giving thanks to God the Father for each other in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

but be filled with the Spirit,  speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,  giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;


Worship is your life poured out to God for His glory. It is right and good to “make music from our hearts to the Lord.” While the music of our hearts can sound like the music we think of, remember that these offerings are perfected at the “ears” of God. Your music may be your witness, the words you speak, the way you dance, perform at your job, or displaying patience. We are uniquely crafted to offer “the music from our heats” to the Lord. Seek God and pray that He would develop and “press out” of you the music in your heart. Share the music with others for the glory of God!
