How can music enable a worshipping assembly to fulfil the commission that Jesus Christ gave to the church- to proclaim, teach, build community, serve and pray?

Music in worship has been used since the times of the Early Church. For centuries, Christians have found music to be a tool that one can use to glorify God and to worship him. Not only this, but music in worship can enable a worshipping assembly to fulfil the commission that Jesus gave the church which was to proclaim, teach, build community, serve and pray. In his book Worship in Spirit and Truth, John M. Frame states that, “Scripture plainly teaches that God’s people are not only to speak, but also to sing, the truth of God…” [1996:111] One can…
