Please don’t do that. Don’t just sing. Sing with fervor. Sing with gusto. Sing with passion. Sing as if it’s real to you. Don’t just… sing.

And while you sing, think. Think about each word, each phrase and each thought. Think about each concept. Think about your salvation and all that God offers you through His Son. Think with depth and it will change you from just a singer to a worshiper.

-Bro. Ryan
