We live in a negative world, a fallen era where it seems that the ungodly are getting more and more easy seen. So much of what we hear is just negative and misrepresentation, and we have to make a deliberate effort to be positive, and counter the culture of despair we live in. Praise is a great tool to help us achieve that.
Therefore, living a life of praise is not only the most enjoyable way to live, but it’s also one of the most powerful ways to change your life. Praise isn’t the box just follows that happens, but it’s more like the engine of a train that makes things happen. Your faith isn’t complete without praise – Colossians 2: 7 says that ” You abound in faith with thanksgiving. “ No thanksgiving equals not abounding in faith.
The most enjoyable way to live.
Christian praise is the joyful thanking and adoring of God, the celebration of His goodness and grace. This simply implies that the act of praising is rightfully due to God alone – Colossians 3: 16 ” Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom. Singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. ”
The most powerful ways to change your life.
We cannot embark on the true joy and benefits of praising God unless we have received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior – Mark 12: 30 ” And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your son ( life ), and with all your mind ( thought, understanding ), and with all your strength. ” We could also widening our understanding by reading 1 Peter 4: 11 ” Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. ”
Our lives are to be singularly focused on Jesus. Each story is about not being distracted – by aims or money or serving or fear or our past – but being completely centered on Jesus. When we pain (or stress ) to follow him, our hearts are filled with joy and purpose and love. When we fix our eyes on him, we receive the one thing our souls truly long for: Himself – “…For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ – Colossians 1: 19. ”
