Worship Arts Pastor Clay Smith - Get Your Praise On!

It is amazing how many passages in the Bible focus on praising God. The Psalms are filled with songs and prayers of praise. The Old and New Testaments record the responses of God's people in praising God. Jesus taught us to begin our prayers with adoration and praise: "Our Father Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name." How much time do we spend actually praising God?

Praise is not just for public worship services but for daily living! Every day is a day for praise. Every hour is an hour for praise. Every minute is a minute for praise. Every circumstance calls for praise because of the power, compassion, and sovereignty of God.

Children from good homes with love and blessings sometimes demonstrate their immaturity by whining and complaining. They do not always appreciate the goodness of parents. God's children sometimes act the same way. We sometimes do not appreciate God's goodness to us. As we mature in our faith, we learn to see God's hand at work behind the scenes. We learn to grow in praise and thanksgiving. Let us praise the name of the Lord! He is worthy and He is good!

So go ahead - get your praise on!

May Jesus Christ be praised!
