Read Today’s Rhapsody of Realities June 17 2023 Written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Today’s Topic: PRAISING HIM – OUR PRIMARY CALLING
- The primary role of believers, as highlighted in the scripture, is to offer praises to God. This act of praising God is not just a religious ritual, but a fundamental aspect of our relationship with Him. It involves acknowledging His greatness, grace, and glory, and declaring His everlasting kingdom.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding (Psalm 47:6-7).
The scriptures give us more than enough information on God’s relationship with us and how He defines His role as God, as Lord, and as our Father. In each of these roles, He expresses himself differently. He also wants us to know our role: the various roles we play with respect to Him, His Kingdom, one another, and the world.
However, in every single role that we play, He expects us to praise Him. Thus, the primary reason come together as God’s people is to offer praises to God. For a long time, this seemed to have taken a back seat in the Church, but thank God there’s been a change!
Read Yesterday’s Devotional
God’s people all over the world, by the Spirit, are recognizing their role as priests to offer sacrifices of praise to God. That’s our primary calling. He said in 1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people. that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
When we live according to our calling to offer praise to the Lord-extolling His greatness and worshipping His holy Name-we will most certainly enjoy the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel of Christ as Paul puts it in Romans 15:29. It’s God’s will for us.
Even now, begin to praise the Lord! Remember, praise must have content; therefore, offer to the Lord words of praise and thanksgiving; make confessions of His greatness, grace and glory. Declare that there’s none like Him, for His Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion endures from generation to generation. Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, you’re great and greatly to be praised, for there’s none like you; your Kingdom is forever, and your reign is eternal! You’re the only true and wise God. To you be all glory, honour, majesty, dominion and praise, forever and ever. Amen.
30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
31 This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
Hebrews 13:15 AMPC
15 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.
147 Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
