A Thought

“By [Christ] let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God; that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” Hebrews 13:15-16

As the saying goes, ‘all we have is a gift from God. What we do with what we have is our gift to God.’

Praise and worship – and – giving of ourselves is the holistic approach to doing honor and glory to the Lord. So many love to say that being in church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than being in a garage makes you a car. True enough, but we cannot ignore or neglect any part of what it means to be the Body of Christ. There can be no segment of our total living experience that is immune from Christ Himself, nothing that is uniquely “ours” over which the Lord has no legitimate claim. So what we do with what we have has everything to do with the measure of our commitment to the cause of Christ; which is the Gospel for which He died … and the eternal hope for which He was raised from the dead.
