To Praise Him is to Love Him; to Love Him is to Obey His Commands

Some say praising Jesus is just singing. Others say it a combination of many things. Let's see what the Bible say. In the book of Exdous 15:1-3 it says Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord: I will sing to the Lord for he is highly exalted. The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea. The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a warrior; the Lord is his name. Now look at Deuteronomy 32:1 it says Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants. I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he. They have acted corruptly toward him; to their shame they are no longer his children, but a warped and crooked generation. Is this the way you repay the Lord, O foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made and formed you?

Look at 2Samuel 22:47 it says The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior! He is the God who avenges me, who puts the nations under me, who sets me free from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from violet men you rescued me. Therefore I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing praises to your name. He give his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever.

Now look at 1Chronicles 16:23 it says Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For the gods of the are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place. Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength, ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come before him; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Tremble before him, all the earth! The world is firmly established;; it cannot be moved. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, The Lord reigns! Let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them! Then the trees of the forest will sing, they will sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Cry out, Save us, O God our Savior,, gather us and deliver us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name that we may glory in your praise. Praise be to the Lord,, the God of Israel, for everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said "Amen" and "Praise the Lord"

Look at 2Chronicles 20:21 it says After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed me to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying; Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever. There are many verses in the book of Psalms lets look at Psalms 33:1 it says Sing joyfully tot he Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Now look at Psalm 34:1 it says I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the Lord;; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. Psalms 68:19 says Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves; for the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.

Now look at Psalms 100:3 it says Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Now look at Psalms 105:1 it says Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name;; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced O descendants of Abraham his servant, O sons of Jacob, his chosen ones. He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth. Now look at Psalms 119:175 it says Le me live that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me. I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commands. Psalms 146:1 says Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul. I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;; on that very day their plans come to nothing.

Look in the book of Proverbs 27:1 it says Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. Let another praise you, and not own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips. Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but provocation by a fool is heavier than both. Now take a look at Matthew 5:16 it says In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Now look at Ephesians 1: 13 it says And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word to truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession-to the praise of his glory.

It says in 1Peter 4:11 If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

The book of James 5:1 tells us The Prayer of Faith, it says, Is any one of you in trouble? Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint hie with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned he will b forgiven. Therefore confess your sine to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

In closing look at Hebrews 13:15 it says Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Love Always,
Your Sister in Christ,
Mellody Davis
