Hebrews 13:15 Thought/Prayer: Doxology and Hebrews 13:15. Topics: 2 at end.
“Through Him, then, let us continually lay on the altar a sacrifice of praise to God, namely, the utterance of lips that give thanks to His Name.” (WEY) (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
“Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.”
For another look at the words of this enduring hymn, let us consider Hebrews 13:15. The Doxology tells us to praise, praise, praise. Hebrews 13:15 tells us to offer praise as a sacrifice in the speech-giving of lips that give thanks. It would seem that the Hebrews passage qualifies the words in the hymn. Hebrews tells us, in part, how to praise, praise, praise, from our lips.
And, in the giving of words from our lips, we are to give thanks. This is another part of praise. We praise God for all that He has given us.
And we lay our praise as a sacrifice on the altar before Him, possibly symbolically today – or perhaps ritually in a formal setting. (The words we say may be seen as laid on an altar, as we stand or kneel before one in thanksgiving.)
And the last noteworthy word to consider in Hebrews is continually. Seem difficult to do? To always be praising? Sometimes it may seem so; but if we consider the thanksgiving of praise, is it so hard? Are we not continually thanking God for His goodness as we go through our days? Maybe not some days, you may say. Yes, it’s true. But as we benefit from His gifts of life and care, it often comes easy to say, “Thank you”!
Lord, thank You for this old dear hymn. And thank You that in scripture we can augment its meaning, even unto the practice of the lyrics. May we be praising You for each small victory for LIFE and the turning of many to You for help in LIFE decisions.
Topics: Praise God, thankfully, sacrificially, and continually.
