Continual Praise

The continual sacrifice (1) of praise to God is not simply screaming and yelling to the top of our lungs. It is not only shouting phrases of adoration.

Many houses of worship minimize worship to Christ by extensive and overly long services in the name of accessing the presence of God. It is also minimized by not emphasizing who He is with minimal praise and worship during collective times of praise and worship.

Both are admirable, good, and necessary. However, how does one continue continual sacrifice? How are we to continue praising God beyond the walls of houses of worship?

We do it by laying down our lives everyday to His word and will.

This is not some act of isolation. It is an act of integration. It is an act of allowing the Word of God, the power of His Spirit, and the convictions of heart to be poured out in all that we do.

Our thoughts become one with His Word. Our spirit becomes one with His Spirit. Our convictions become one with His convictions. Out of this covenant and relationship comes a continual sacrifice of praise to God and sustained proclamation and demonstration of our allegiance to His name.

Hebrews 13:15 (NLT)
