“Praise and Worship – Why we need to do them”

May 19, 2017

What is your way to praise and worship the Lord?

Exodus 23:25  Worship the Lord your God, and His blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you.

Worship, as defined by the Oxford dictionary, is the feeling of reverence and adoration for a deity. We, as believers, revere and adore the Lord when we worship Him. In addition, it is a way for us to give thanks for everything that we have and to show our appreciation to God for all that He has given us. It doesn’t only show our love for God, but it also gives us strength to keep His commandments. We receive the blessings of the Lord and feel His presence while worshipping Him. Through it, we are able to grow in our spiritual life.

Psalm 145:3 Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise: His greatness no one can fathom.

The Lord is worthy to be praised. How do we praise the Lord?

We can praise Him by singing joyful and holy songs, by praying and talking to Him regularly, by playing musical instruments in His name, by praying for others, by reading His words, and of course, by discipleship. Through spreading the good news that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, you praise God by encouraging others to follow His Word and be closer to Him.

Colossians 3:16  Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

Whatever you do in life, do it all for the glory of God.

Every simple way of worshipping and praising God can bring joy to Him. Start bringing joy to the Lord today!
