Hebrews 13:15-16 Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to His name.16 And do not neglect to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
The writer of this text exhorts us as believers, to do several things in these 2 verses. Let’s listen.
(1) We are with commitment and confidence, is called to offer sacrifices to God “THROUGH HIM” (Jesus Christ), (2) We are to do offer these sacrifices continually, (3) the sacrifice must be one of “PRAISE”, (3) This sacrifice is to be of thanksgiving from the fruit of our lips that gives thanks to the name of the Lord our God through Christ Jesus. In other words, using your mouth and lips to praise God(4) This exhortation also calls us to make a sacrifice of doing what is good and (5) we are to offer the sacrifice of sharing with others for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
David declares in Psalm 34:1- I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Is this your declaration on today concerning your sacrifice unto the Lord our God through Christ Jesus?
These sacrifices that the writer exhorts us to offer up (live out in our lives) to God is one of gratitude that is done daily with confidence and commitment through Christ Jesus who is the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.
Are you one who is constantly complaining or grumbling? Turn that negative into a positive through an attitude of gratitude with “PRAISE” to God the Father through Christ Jesus.
If you have not been doing so, start today by living a life of daily sacrificial offerings of praise to God through Christ and also by sharing and helping others for in doing so God is well pleased.
The Lord our God loves our thanks and praises. He loves it when our lips and mouths are used to confess, glorify and magnify His Holy name for scripture declares that this pleases Him.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for a mouth full of praise and a heart full of gratitude for what God has done for you and I through His Son Jesus Christ.
Tell the Lord thank you people of God for indeed He has proven His love to us through Christ atonement at Calvary.
Hallelujah!!!!! Glory to Your name Lord!!!!!!!!!!!Thank you Jesus!!!!
