OFFER TO GOD A SACRIFICE OF PRAISE

Today’s devotion calls upon the people of God to offer a sacrifice of praise. Such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Christ made supreme sacrifices on our behalf. No one can offer greater love than that. Consequently, we are compelled to acknowledge His great love for us by offering Him praise that flows from our hearts to our lips. Take the time today to express your deep and genuine love for Christ who shed His blood for our sins. The songwriter wrote, “What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make us whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” Now, after you have honored God with your praise, reflect upon the words in Hebrews 13:15, which reads in this manner:

“Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name.”

The writer draws light on the bountiful love of Jesus Christ and acknowledges the awesome sacrifice He paid for us. He says for us to honor Him continually with praise and thanksgiving. This is our reasonable service. In verse 16, he writes, “But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” We can never stop praising God for He is worthy to be praised. What else can we offer to Him for He owns everything? The least we can do is to acknowledge your deep and genuine appreciation for His amazing love.
