“One Songleader, our Lord Jesus Christ” by Sinclair B. Ferguson

“We come for worship to be led by one Songleader, our Lord Jesus Christ. Which, incidentally, is one of the reasons you ought to be singing. Shame on me if I am silent when I am standing at the shoulder of my Lord Jesus Christ singing His heart out in praises to His heavenly Father.

Shame on me if I am in His choir and I am silent when He is urging me to sing the praises of this magnificent God. It is a marvelous incentive to sing that you know that it is Jesus who is leading your singing.”

–Sinclair B. Ferguson. “True Spirituality, True Worship.” Lookout Mountain, GA: Covenant College, 2004. Audio CD. As quoted in Ron Man, Proclamation and Praise: Hebrews 2:12 and the Christology of Worship (Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock, 2007), 80-81.

  1. Great quote. No doubt I’ll be reusing that at some point. Thanks!

  2. I just wanted to thank you for putting these quotes up here. I read your blog through Google Reader, so I don’t often comment, but I really enjoy your selection of the choice words that you read from these books.

    We have pulled from it more than once for our bulletin (http://www.edgewood-danville.org). You seem to have a talent for quoting something that fits in with what we are exploring at church.

    Thanks again, Keep it up.
