Do You Praise God?

“Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.”

Psalm 100:1


Ponder This

There’s nothing wrong with getting excited in church. I heard about a man who came to a cold church. The preacher said something he agreed with and he said, “Amen.” Everybody turned around and looked at him. After a while, he said, “Praise the Lord.” Then people arched their eyebrows. Next time he said “Amen” an usher tapped him on the shoulder to quiet him down. The usher said, “What is wrong with you?” He said, “Well, nothing. I’ve just got religion.” To which the usher curtly replied, “Well, mister, you didn’t get it here.”

It’s easier to cool down a zealot than it is to warm up a corpse.

Practice This

What does it mean to make a joyful noise unto the Lord? How do you make a joyful noise to Him...not just on Sundays in church, but all week long? Sing one of your favorite hymns throughout the day today.
