Give God quality praise with your lips every day.
To The Bible Hebrews 13:15
“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.”
Back in the Old Testament, the children of Israel would sacrifice bulls, sheep, and goats in worship of the Lord. In fact, on one occasion, Solomon, King of Israel, offered 22,000 oxen and 120,00 sheep as a sacrifice to the Lord! (1 Kings 8:63). The children of Israel were required to make such sacrifices according to the Law of Moses. But guess what, even though we’re instructed to offer sacrifices of praise to God in the New Testament, we don’t have to kill any animals to do it!
Hebrews 13:15 clearly describes the content of our “sacrifice of praise.” It says it is “the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” This means our sacrifices of praise today are the confessions, declarations, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that we make in thanksgiving to the Lord for His goodness and grace.
This is what praise really is; it’s much more than saying, “I praise you Lord; I just want to thank you for everything.” Praising God means giving thanks to Him for definite reasons.
As you praise and worship the Lord, making confessions to His Name, it is as a sacrifice of a sweet-smelling savour that’s pleasing to Him. As He accepts your sacrifice, His presence overshadows you and causes His glory to be seen in your life.
Go Deeper Romans 12:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, 1 Peter 2:5
Dear Father, thank you for the entrance of your Word that gives me light and understanding concerning true praise! I thank you for making me an heir of eternal salvation, and for your goodness and grace that abound toward me always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Sing a new song of praise to the Lord; start by singing in other tongues, and let the words of praise flow from the depths of your spirit.
