The Sacrifice of Praise

Hebrews-13-15-Through-Him-then-let-us-offer-up-a-sacrifice-of-praise-continually-to-God-that-is-the-fruit-of-lips-confessing-His-name

The scripture teaches us to constantly offer up to God a sacrifice of praise. As we know a sacrifice is not something that is always easy to carry out, in fact struggle is usually involved. When we are struggling with life’s pressures, powerful emotions, lack of patience, or personal problems; it can be a spiritual battle to offer up a sacrifice of praise. But because of His unmerited grace and abundant mercy, when our heart, soul, and mind desire to spiritually overcome, we will be able to exert the effort to rise above what we are feeling, and enter into sacrificial praise to our God. This sacrifice of praise and honor is not only pleasing to the God of Glory, but it will gradually lift us out of our self-absorption, and release us into the freedom of Spirit, God desires for us to experience.

On the cross Jesus, the perfect lamb of God, sacrificed His life, and offered up Himself, so there is no longer a need to offer up blood sacrifices for mankind’s sin. Jesus Christ paid the price for our redemption, once and for all- it is finished! Praise His Name!  Because of our Wonderful Lord Jesus and what He has sacrificed for us, we will offer up to God a steady stream of praise sacrifices- these are ‘the lambs’ we offer from our lips that celebrate His name!

“Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name” (Hebrews 13:15).
