The sacrifice of praise

By Him therefore let s offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name (Hebrews 13:15)

The sacrifice of praise are the confessions, declarations, psalms, hymns and spiritual songs of the glory, grace and goodness of God that we make unto Him. It’s different from saying, “I praise You Lord, I just thank You for everything…..”Praise is more than that. Praising God means giving thanks to His Name for definite reasons.

In the Old Testament, the priests offered specific offerings to God; they offered sacrifices of burnt offerings and burnt incense, according to the specifications of the law. We also in the New Testament are admonished to offer sacrifices of praise to God and Hebrews 13:15 clearly describes the content of the sacrifice we’ve been called to offer: “By Him (Jesus Christ) therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name.”

As you worship the Lord and adore Him, making confessions to His Name, you’re offering unto Him the sacrifice of praise. As you offer quality praise and present your body to Him as a living sacrifice, you send forth incense unto Him, and His presence rubs-off on you and overshadows you.

Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word, the entrance of which has given me light and understanding today, concerning true worship! Thus, from the depths of my heart this day, I worship You for Your goodness and grace towards me, I thank You for making me a heir of the eternal salvation You wrought through Christ Jesus! Amen!
