1 Chronicles Chapter 25 (ESV)
1 David and the chiefs of the service also set apart for the service the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who prophesied with lyres, with harps, and with cymbals. The list of those who did the work and of their duties was: 2 Of the sons of Asaph: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asharelah, sons of Asaph, under the direction of Asaph, who prophesied under the direction of the king. 3 Of Jeduthun, the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the direction of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with the lyre in thanksgiving and praise to the Lord. 4 Of Heman, the sons of Heman: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel and Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, Mahazioth. 5 All these were the sons of Heman the king’s seer, according to the promise of God to exalt him, for God had given Heman fourteen sons and three daughters. 6 They were all under the direction of their father in the music in the house of the Lord with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the order of the king. 7 The number of them along with their brothers, who were trained in singing to the Lord, all who were skillful, was 288. 8 And they cast lots for their duties, small and great, teacher and pupil alike.
- There were different approaches in worshipping God in the tabernacle. Some spoke prophecies and sang songs (25:1), some expressed thanksgiving and praises (25:3), and some played musical instruments (25:6-7), God demands all His people to worship Him. You may not be a musician nor a prophet but God accepts all that you could offer to Him.
- Reflect whether you have fully utilized your gifts in serving God in the church. Are you an active worshipper or passive observer in the church worship?
No matter how much or little your gift and talent is, pray that God will use it to serve other brothers and sisters in the church. Pray that God will use you through your obedience, give you the courage to bear responsibilities and the strength to victory.
