Have you praised the Lord lately? He is worthy!
These five passages encourage Christians to constantly acknowledge God with joy and gratitude.
“Give thanks to the LORD because he is good,
because his mercy endures forever.
Say, ‘Rescue us, O God our Savior.
Gather us and save us from the nations
so that we may give thanks to your holy name
and make your praise our glory.’
Thanks be to the LORD God of Israel
from everlasting to everlasting.”
1 Chronicles 16:34-36
Let everyone give thanks to you, O God.
Let everyone give thanks to you.
Let the nations be glad and sing joyfully
because you judge everyone with justice
and guide the nations on the earth. Selah
With joy you will draw water from the springs of salvation.
At that time you will say,
“Praise the LORD.
Call on his name.
Make his deeds known among the nations.
Make them remember that his name is highly honored.
Make music to praise the Lord.
He has done wonderful things.
Let this be known throughout the earth.
Shout loudly, and sing with joy, people of Zion!
The Holy One of Israel is great. He is among you.”
Let Christ’s word with all its wisdom and richness live in you. Use psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to teach and instruct yourselves about God’s kindness. Sing to God in your hearts. Everything you say or do should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
