A dear Christian lady said to a group of ladies at church recently, “I know I’m preaching to the choir!” We’ve all heard the statement and maybe even said it ourselves; ‘I’m preaching to the choir’.
Just what does it mean to “preach to the choir”? And, why does the choir always have to be the ones preached to? After all, they know all the truths being laid out – that’s the reason they “sing”.
It is the faithful “choir” that hears the sermons on being faithful.
It is the tithing “choir” that hears the sermons on giving.
It is the loving “choir” that hears the sermons on loving the brethren.
It is the serving “choir” that hears the sermons on serving the Lord.
It is the quiet “choir” that hears the sermons on gossip.
It is the holy “choir” that hears the sermons on living above reproach.
It is the witnessing “choir” that hears the sermons on evangelism.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason the “choir” is always being preached to is because they are the ones who show up for practice. God bless the choir members! It is the faithful that shall abound with blessings (Prov. 28:20). It is those that tithe cheerfully that God loves (2 Cor. 9:6,7). It is those that love the brethren who are assured of their salvation (I John 3:14,15). Those that serve others are the ones who are serving Christ (Matt. 25:40). Those that do not gossip are considered wise (Prov. 10:18-20). It is the holy that are the obedient children (I Pet. 1:14-16). And those that witness are doing the Will of our Lord (Matt. 28:19-20). Are you a choir member? If so, thank you! Your service and sacrifice is sweet sounding music that flows all the way to the Throne of Heaven. If you’re not a choir member, why not? You can join today.
