PRAISE HIM FROM OUR HEART
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32 KJV
What is the truth? The truth is that our precious Saviour loves us so much that He left His Father, His home and all that He had to come to earth and die for our sins. What kind of love is this? It is an amazing unconditional love that can only come from the heart of Jesus. What a privilege is ours to be loved by Jesus.
Franklin Hunter wrote “Raise His Praise”. “Sing His praise and like a clarion, Loud and long retain the sound. For ‘tis through His great salvation, That we are no longer bound. Sin no more can have dominion, In His death He set us free; Shout this message to the nations, “Jesus Christ brings liberty.”
We sing praises to Him but are we singing and praising Him from our heart? Are we thinking about Him when we sing or are we thinking about the roast we left in the oven and wondering if we will get home in time to shut the oven off? How it must hurt Jesus and break His heart if we aren’t singing from our heart.
Years ago, I saw a choir singing on television and nobody was smiling yet they were singing about our precious Saviour. When we sing praises to Jesus, we should have smiles on our face and joy in our heart. He died for our sins on the cross. How can we not rejoice and smile after all He has done for us?
