As God’s people, may it be the cry of our heart to call out to God to come and visit us and move in our midst as we offer up our sacrifices of praise. Hebrews 13:15 says, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise — the fruit of lips that confess his name.” Let’s continue to trust God and His word and make every effort to lift up His holy name. Listen to Psalm 115 and how much it applies right now:
Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness. Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?” Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him. But their idols are silver and gold, made by the hands of men. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see; they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but they cannot smell; they have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but they cannot walk; nor can they utter a sound with their throats. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them. O house of Israel, trust in the LORD—He is their help and shield.
We cannot let down in anything, so keep your feet to the task at hand. Get to know your music and be ready in and out of season.
