Praise is Comely (Hebrews 13:15,16)

December 3, 2013 by Pito

 

  We know God through His deeds and through His Word and they are both mighty, glorious and wondrous. In the Older Testament David praised God saying,

    “One generation shall praise thy works to another and shall declare thy mighty acts.”

   In the New Testament, Paul adds his praise for the mighty works done through the Lord Jesus, saying,

    “In whom we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His will, that we should be to the praise of His glory…”

    We show forth the glory of God as we speak the truth in love, as we encourage the weak, as we trust Him through our trials, as we provide for the oppressed.

   We also praise God by singing as we march to battle against His enemies and ours. God expects enthusiasm.  As we joyously sing together, we image the Holy Trinity.

   When the Lord judges, it is to deliver His people, to put the world to rights, to manifest His goodness, His mercy and His faithfulness. God’s plan is to draw all nations to Himself and He will do it, accomplishing His will on earth as it is in heaven.

   May the Lord be pleased with the praise of our lips and may He be pleased with the praise of our lives as we work out our salvation with fear and trembling.

   This morning we eat and drink from His table of Joy. He endured the cross for the joy that was set before Him and we endure our crosses for the joy that is set before us, to know Him and the fellowship of His sufferings. Let us now be delight to Him, as we remember His death until He comes again.
