Expressions of Praise - Psalm 34

Glorifying the Lord is not limited to worshipping in church. In fact, praise ought to permeate the believer's life.


One obvious way that we praise the Lord is with our voice. We can either speak or sing our worship. Psalm writers put adoration into words and set their love to music. True worship also flows from the mouths of believers who are focused upon God’s attributes. They desire to honor Him because of who He is, what He has done, and what He has promised for the future.


Genuine worship allows the Lord to fill our hearts and minds with His presence. But praising the Lord with wrong motives is an empty act. For example, if we're lifting our hands and singing loud only because doing so feels good, then what we’re after is an emotional high. That kind of selfish "praise" falls far short of heaven.


Our God is praised when we serve Him. People are created for the purpose of bringing glory and honor to His name. Therefore, nothing should limit our willingness to work for the King, particularly when we have a chance to share Him with others. Christ is honored when His followers speak boldly about His grace and His work - believers' testimonies are an amazing form of praise that magnifies God’s name.


Jesus Christ is worth more than any treasure this world offers. Loving Him and understanding what He's done for you should be all the motivation you need to praise Him with your life. Don't just sing; serve His kingdom and share the gospel. Help to make God’s throne room ring with worship.



Upcoming Sermon Series
      Temptation is the seductive little voice that twists what you want into what you need. It distorts your thoughts until you're trapped - and when you're trapped by temptation, it's not the time to listen to yourself. Learn to put your trust in someone who knows A Way Out. God always gives us a way out. We won’t try to manage temptation, but eliminate it. We will attack temptation from a positive perspective by focusing on living by the Spirit. This series will start April 8, 2018.


Last Week:
      Our lives are full of up and downs, just like like a roller coaster. We looked at the life of Elijah. He had his ups and downs, his good experiences as well as bad experiences. We saw how we are to be faithful to God even when it's hard.
