SUNDAY SERMON ON THE BLOG – HOLY, AND MAJESTIC, AND MIGHTY!
Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. – Psalm 103:1-5.
Praise must not just come from our lips.
Praise must emanate from deep within our soul, recognising all the great blessings God has given us. While God is worthy of praise because He is Holy, and majestic, and mighty, we have even greater reasons to praise him.
He has been so very gracious to us!
Loving Heavenly Father, I praise you for your gift of creation. I praise you for your love in granting us free will to accept or reject you. I praise you for choosing Abraham to be the beginning of faith and a people through whom Jesus would come. I praise you for sending Jesus. I praise you for providing the sacrifice for my sins. I praise you for raising him from the dead and triumphing over sin and death. I praise you for those who shared the Gospel of your grace with me. I praise for what you are doing through me and for me. I praise for what you are about to do and yet remains enshrouded in mystery to me. I praise because you are Almighty God, who has chosen to be my Abba Father. In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour, I praise you. Amen.
