Praising God Before the World
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
We need to offer praise and thanksgiving to God, not only in the congregation, but in the home life. Let the voices of His heritage
be heard recounting the works of the Lord.
Speak of His goodness, tell of His power….
We feel depressed, greatly depressed, as we see the world and its wickedness. The professed Christian world is enveloped in the darkness that covers the earth. We sigh and cry for the abominations that are done in the land. Why is it that all this
wickedness does not break forth in decided violence against righteousness and truth? It is because the four angels are holding the four winds, that they shall not blow upon the earth. But human passions are reaching
a high pass, and the Spirit of the Lord is being withdrawn from the earth. Were it not that God has commanded angelic agencies to control the satanic agencies that
are seeking to break loose and to destroy, there would be no hope.
But the winds are to be held until the servants of God are sealed in their foreheads…. Amid the moral darkness light is to shine forth in clear, distinct rays…. But every
soul needs to turn his face toward the light that he May reflect this light. We need to praise God much more than we do. We are to show that we have cause for rejoicing.
“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” (1 Peter 2:9).
Are we doing this as fully as we
should? Are we revealing that love in the home that will honor and glorify our Redeemer?
However black the clouds that roll upon the world at the present time, there is light beyond.
Ignorance, superstition, darkness,
unbelief strong and masterful, will meet us at every step we advance. But our faith must soar above all and see the bow of promise encircling the throne. We must
reflect the light with pen and voice, praising God before the world.
#what is that special song you sing, sing it now unto the Lord#
GOD BLESS YOU!
