Glorify His Name (Worship)

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

Glorifying (worshipping) the Lord is not an event limited to a Sunday church service. In fact, glory and praise should permeate the believer’s life.

One way we can do that is with our voice. Worship flows from the mouths of Christ followers who focus on God’s attributes. Yes, we glorify, honor, and praise Him for who He is and what He can do. The blessing from that is that the Lord fills our heart and mind with His presence. Why? Because the Lord inhabits the praise of His people [Psalm 22:3].

Another way we worship the Lord, one which is often overlooked, is in serving others. Do you know that’s part of God’s saving grace to you? Paul told the Ephesian Christ followers that we are saved by God’s grace, through faith, for good works:

For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them [Ephesians 2:8-10].

Knowing that you are saved, brought from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, should be all the motivation you need to worship God with your life by voice and by action—in word and deed. 

God is worthy of our worship, isn’t He? So let it rip! As the Psalmist said, let’s praise the Lord at all times. Let’s fill out work places, our schools, our homes, our churches, our recreational activities with glorious praise to God. By the way, when we do that, we also fill  God’s throne room with worship!

I will praise the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. I will boast in the Lord; the humble will hear and be glad. Proclaim the LORD’s greatness with me; let us exalt His name together. Psalm 34:1-3
