What does the classic Christmas song: “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” and the Hillsong United song: “So Will I,” have in common? As we sing them, they both clearly portray the truth about God. In modern contemporary worship, it’s easy to get lost in the “my story” aspect of worship. So much so, that we’ve gotten into a bad habit of making worship about us. Johnny Markin joins us on this episode of indoubt to look at the importance of the words we sing to God, about God, and to one another. Truthfully, the big picture of worship isn’t just singing – biblically, it’s much bigger. However, with repetition and beautiful melodies, songs become something we easily remember. But when’s the last time you really looked at the words you’re singing?
