PRAISE THE LORD!
“Even everyone that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea I have made him. This people I have formed for myself, they shall shew forth my praise.” Isaiah 23:7, 21
HOPE FOR TODAY:
How many know that we are here for a reason? A purpose that pleases God?
So many today are consumed with other thoughts and desires that are so far removed from what we were all created for, we are not here for our own gain, for our own plans, or for the making of our own ideas! Instead we have been created and placed here to please God.
Some will say I help many people, I am friendly and do many good works, or I am a good person because I work hard and live a quiet life! My friends clearly these type of statements point to how far removed they may be! They are statements that are all about themselves and not about pleasing God at all!
Not one of these statements claim to praise God and are directed at pleasing him!
A CHOSEN PEOPLE… A PECULIAR PEOPLE…
Chosen and Peculiar is who we are. Anyone that is called by his name, “CHRISTIAN” has been chosen and to the world will seem peculiar because they do not live their lives to bring praise and glory to themselves, but rather to their ALMIGHTY AND HOLY GOD! It is our purpose and the reason why we have been created, as we read,
“Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 2:5
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
Let us offer up to God today the sacrifices of praise, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to him for all that he is and all that he has done!
Let us praise the Lord! Sing songs of gladness and thanksgiving to our Lord!
