THE WITNESSING POWER OF WORSHIP
This is a call to worship. Not only that, it is a call to witness. We might even say that it is a call to the kind of worship that is in itself a witness to the peoples outside the faith.
The psalmist called the people of Israel to begin their worship with thanks to the Lord. He urged them to call upon the Lord by name, ascribing to Him His many attributes. In addition to calling Him by name, they were instructed to call out His many deeds.
This is a great way to begin our worship. Indeed, it’s a great way to begin each day!
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, we give You thanks. For everything we have is from You. We call upon the name of Your Son, Jesus. He is our Savior. He is our Lord. He is our Great Physician, our Great High Priest, the Lion of Judah, and Wonderful Counselor. Father, through Jesus, You have paid for our sins and opened a new and better way for our salvation. You have adopted us into Your family and called us Sons and made us coheirs with Christ. O how You have loved us! Now, we express our thanks. We declare You name and attributes. Strengthen us make know Your salvation among the nations. In Jesus’ name, amen.
