Some assemblies use mechanical instruments during worship and others sing “a cappella.”  There was a time when I wrestled with this issue.  Does it make a difference whether or not we use mechanical instruments in worship?

Holy Spirit Study

One of my favorite passages of Scripture:

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Ro 8:26–27). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

The study of the Holy Spirit is fascinating and beneficial. I would like to share these links:

When reading this article, I think of the book of James.  James says that no man can tame the tongue.   In James 3:9-10 the Bible says:

With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.  Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing.  My brethren, these things ought not to be so.

We need the Lord’s assistance to “tame our tongues.”
