In Ephesians 5-6, Paul writes about the results of being filled with the Holy Spirit. Part of his description involves music and singing:
[B]e filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart… (Ephesians 5:18b-19 ESV)
Paul indicates that the outward expression of our “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs” is directed toward “one another,” while the inward expression (our “heart”) is directed toward the Lord.
How should this affect our music and singing (and the purpose of our music and singing) when we gather together with the church?
