What do you think of when you hear the word worship? To some people worship may be a physical act or words of admiration. There are many ways to show God your love and respect. One way I show him my devotion is through song. The Bible gives us insight into worship through singing.

What does it mean to sing a new song to the Lord?
I looked up the word New in Hebrew (chadash) – It means fresh, renewed.
The word new in Ezekiel 11:19 is the same Hebrew word used in Isaiah 42:10, it states “And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you” (KJV). God loves doing a new thing and renewing our body, soul, and spirit.When we sing Him a new song we are worshiping and praising Him but at the same time we are renewing our minds and souls by remembering the great things He has done.
