1 Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord. Psalm 150:1
Through the rest of this series, I am including the entirety of Psalm 150 in each devotional. It’s short enough to read through every day. I will be highlighting a verse or two each day.
It’s obvious that we should be praising God in the place we worship. It’s one of the reasons we assemble together. We gain strength from the company and friendship of fellow Travelers.
Similarly, when we bond together in one activity such as worship, God is pleased. Sure, our backgrounds, social statuses, goals, careers, and family life is completely different from the family that stands beside us during corporate worship but we don’t let that get in the way of worshiping God together. We have may even have differing ideas about styles and music and drama during a worship service, we still come and worship an omniscient, all-powerful, and faithful God.
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! Psalm 133:1
As you prepare for worship this week, consider one way to help bring you closer to those who sit near you. A phone call, a letter, or even an email to encourage them would be a great start.
