The Sacrifice of Praise
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God
continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to
do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well
Today’s Morsel: When you go to church, what do you go for? Do you go to worship and praise God? Every time we go to church, we should go to give God praise. Psalms 100 tells us, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name.” (Psalms 100:4) and Psalms 113 tells us, “Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised.” (Psalms 113:1-3) Our sacrifices should be the best that we can offer. Our day should begin with praise to God and it should end with the same. When we realize how good God has been to us, in things that we can and cannot see, we should praise and give Him thanks. As Paul admonishes us, “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) Real praise should always come from a heart of thanksgiving.
Sing: Praise Him, Praise Him, praise Him in the morning, praise Him in the noon time. Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him when the sun goes down.
Thought For Today: Real praise should always come from a heart of thanksgiving.
