A Call to Worship
by PamFord Davis
9/16/2016 / Devotionals
Traditional hymns, spiritual songs and praise worship
Though preferences in style frequently cause divisions in today's congregations, each exalts the LORD God.
Back in the 1970's, my husband Norm and I sang in a traditional choir in the Louisiana Delta town of Lake Providence. As members of the First Baptist Church choir, we took part in calls to worship, church anthems, congregational hymns, invitations, benediction selections and cantatas.
One of the calls to worship was based on the last verse of today's scripture passage.
"What profit is the image, that its maker should carve it,
The molded image, a teacher of lies,
That the maker of its mold should trust in it,
To make mute idols?
Woe to him who says to wood, 'Awake!'
To silent stone, 'Arise! It shall teach!'
Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
Yet in it there is no breath at all.
'But the Lord is in His holy temple.
Let all the earth keep silence before Him (Habakkuk 2:18-20 NKJV)."
*The Lord is in His Holy Temple/Public Domain/Adam Geibel [1855-1933]
"The Lord is in his holy temple,
the Lord is in his holy temple;
let all the earth keep silence,
let all the earth keep silence before him,
keep silence, keep silence before him."
