The members of Selah use their personal praise from personal relationship to exhort and teach others about the walk of salvation with Jesus Christ through scripturally based rhythmic poetry, usually accompanied by an instrumental. The goal is that many would be empowered by wisdom and knowledge of the Word of God to step into salvation and navigate through the obstacles that come after the reception of salvation.
"Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices
[[a]and instruments] and making melody
with all your heart to the Lord,"
--Ephesians 5:19 AMPC
"Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of
urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.]
And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning
and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging
and inexhaustible in patience and teaching."
--2 Timothy 4:2 AMPC
