Music is Important to God

Music must be important to God!  In the Old Testament, God set aside 38,000 Levites for His service in the Temple. They had various duties (1 Chronicles 23-26).

  • David commanded the Levites to appoint their kindred as musicians (15:16-24).
  • Musicians preceded the ark of the covenant (15:25-28).
  • David stationed singers/musicians around the ark in the tabernacle (16:4).
  • The singers, musicians, and people praised the Lord (16:7-36).
  • Music is part of regular worship (16:37-43).
  • David appointed 4,000 temple musicians (23:5).

God did not create and appoint musicians to worship FOR the people, but to lead the people as THEY worshipped!
