Life is full of praise... Parents praising children, Grandparents praising grandchildren, Men praising automobiles, Women praising outfits and meals, a painter’s masterpiece, a conductor’s symphony, a chef’s meal, an architect’s building... Praise is a release of inner joy and excitement (Psalm 39:1-3).
Paul’s prayer (Ephesians 3:14-21) begins with “your glory” (v. 13b) and ends with “glory” (v. 21) This is a simple passage on how to pray for each other. These four things give God the glory He deserves/desires:
Worship, true worship, is the quality a Father looks for in His children. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, to honor Him, and to worship Him. Worship means to show worth and/or value. What is God worth to you? (see John 4:19-24, Hebrews 10:19-25)
Bill Mallory traveled to India and back to find his life’s purpose - He never found it. He asked at every Chevron - “As you travel, ask us.” He only received a credit application in the mail as a response. You’ll not find it at a gas station, on a talk show, or in a self-help book. You’ll only find it in the Word of God (Revelation 4:11).
