「角笛を吹き鳴らして、神をほめたたえよ。十弦の琴と立琴をかなでて、神をほめたたえよ。 タンバリンと踊りをもって、神をほめたたえよ。緒琴と笛とで、神をほめたたえよ。 音の高いシンバルで、神をほめたたえよ。鳴り響くシンバルで、神をほめたたえよ」詩篇150:3~5



オーケストラの楽器が一つになって、演奏をする時、結果は、とても楽しい音楽です。 同じ様に、教会員が一つになって主に仕える時、結果はとても楽しい教会です。
私達もそうしましょう。 調和して素晴らしい音楽を演奏してオーケストラの様になって、小倉で神様を褒め讃えるオーケストラとなりましょう。

「どうか、忍耐と励ましの神が、あなたがたを、キリスト・イエスにふさわしく、互いに同じ思いを持つようにしてくださいますように。 それは、あなたがたが、心を一つにし、声を合わせて、私たちの主イエス・キリストの父なる神をほめたたえるためです。」ローマ人への手紙15:5~6



Last week I went to the Kitakyushu Symphony Orchestra concert. The orchestra played the compositions of Mozart and Finland’s Sebelius. It was a very wonderful concert.

As I listened to the various instruments, I was thinking about the musical instruments that appear in the Bible. In Psalm 150 we are encouraged to praise the Lord with various instruments.
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
(Psalm 150:3-5)

A church that is pleasing to the Lord resembles an orchestra. Some members are like a trumpet or a drum or cymbals that give a loud sound. Other members are like a violin or flute that gives a gentle sound. When church members who are joined together by their faith in Christ become one and use the talents that God has given them to serve the Lord, the church resembles an orchestra that gives a wonderful performance.

In Psalm 133:1 it is written,
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
When all of the instruments of an orchestra perform in unity, the result is very pleasant music. Likewise, when church members serve the Lord in unity, the result is a very pleasant church.

But that’s not all. According to the Bible, when the church members are in unity, the result is a powerful church. When the believers of the church in Jerusalem became one in heart and soul, they were able to witness with great power.
(Acts 4:32-33)

Let us do the same. Like an orchestra that is playing wonderful music in harmony, let’s become an orchestra that praises God in Kokura.
Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Romans 15:5-6)
