This Sunday we entered into week 2 of our new series “Praise and Thanksgiving”. Our theme verses from this series come from Psalm 100:1-5…
“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His Name.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.”
One of the definitions of “praise” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary is, “To glorify especially by the attribution of perfections.” What sets God a part to be so worthy of our praise? Pastor Bill gave us a few things on Sunday morning!
- Praise Him – Our Savior. Ephesians 1:7 says, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.” Romans 5:9 says, “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.”
- Praise Him – Our Redeemer. Romans 5:19 says, “For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.”
- Praise Him- Our Righteousness. Hebrews 13:15 says, “ Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.”
POINTS TO PONDER:
- Praise and thanksgiving usually go hand and hand, but what do you think makes them different?
- What are some ways to “practice praise” throughout your day?
- Take some time this week to ask God to show you how to cultivate a habit of praise!
