In Psalm 9:11 David writes: “Sing praises to the Lord, who sits enthroned in Zion! Tell among the peoples His deeds.” God’s people are commanded to worship their King in two distinct ways here:
1) They are to “sing praises to the Lord.” If we love God, we will worship Him, and singing is one of the primary means of worship commended in scripture. We should sing to Him every day in our own personal worship time, as an expression of our vertical relationship with Him.
2) He commands them to “Tell among the peoples His deeds.” As important as the personal relationship of the person with God is, it is not to stop there. We are also to tell others about Him.
A balanced worshiper will express their love to God in both their vertical and horizontal relationships. Some fall short of this biblical balance in one way or another. Too many Christians worship God personally but never tell anyone about Him. Others are very evangelistic, but do not have a consistent personal worship time. BOTH of these elements are vital if your relationship with God is to be healthy: sing to Him in personal worship, and tell others about Him as well.
