Five Reasons to Praise God

There are some in the congregation who do not enter into worship. I’m sure there are others that enter in out of routine. Here is a few reasons why we should praise God.

1. Almighty God is worthy of our praise and worship.
- Ps 18:3 “I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised.”
- Rev 5:12 ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

Who God is – Worship
What God has done - Praise
What God has done for you – Thanksgiving

“Praise – thanksgiving - is verbalized faith. If you thank God after the fact, that’s gratitude. If you thank God before it happens, that’s faith.” If you don’t know how, begin to praise from the Psalms. It is a book telling us how to praise God.

2. We are called to praise and worship God.
- 1 Peter 2:5, 9 “You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
- Ps 150:6 “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.”

3. Worship changes us.
- Jer 2:5 NIV “They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves.”
You become like what you worship.

If you worship superficial things – your life becomes superficial.
If you worship perverted things – your life becomes perverted.
If you worship evil things– your life becomes evil.
If your worship the true God – you become godly.

- 2 Cor 3:18 TLB “And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him

4. Praise and worship ushers in the manifested presence of God.
- Ps 22:3 (KJV) “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”
“But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.”

5. Praise defeats our enemy.
- Ps 8:2 NIV “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.”
Our praise puts evil to flight.

God bless you and yours.
On behalf of this generation,
Your friends in the service of Christ,
