The Lord created us to render Him all our praise and worship, His desire is that we live all our days in worship. We were created for the sole purpose of living our lives as an aroma and fragrance of worship before Him. 1 Peter 2:9 tells us, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” We are the people acquired by God! We must continually proclaim our praise and worship to Him
We are a special people to God, a royal priesthood, continually called to be ministering with our sacrifice of worship in the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The book of Hebrews reminds us of this responsibility we have today, “so let us offer to God through him the sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name” (Hebrews 13:15). Our lips must always be declaring the greatness of our God. He is worthy of all our praise and worship! While we have breath and life, we must exalt God’s name together!
We are His people, His flock, His sheep of which He has great care. As the Shepherd cares for us always, nothing compares to the care He offers us today. For this reason it is necessary that we praise God with all our heart together and unanimously. As Psalm 79:13 declares, “So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, Will give You thanks forever; We will show forth Your praise to all generations.” Remember that it is when people praise God together that His glory and power descend upon our lives. Let us pray that nothing may steal the blessing of worshiping He who sits on the throne, for this is why we were created.
