颂赞为祭 [Sacrifice of Praise]

书卷:希伯来书(新约)
作者:匿名

希伯来书13章15节:“我们应当靠着耶稣,常常以颂赞为祭献给上帝,这就是那承认主名之人嘴唇的果子。“

今日默想:赞美乃是一种的祭,是将自己的荣耀羞辱,美名恶名都放在祭坛上焚烧给上帝,而不为自己留下什么。这样的祭必蒙上帝悦纳。赞美的祭是应当献给上帝的。信徒多半只会向生的祈求,却极少有人懂得赞美祂。岂不知诗篇22篇3节所说,上帝是以我们的赞美为宝座的吗?我们越赞美上帝,就越多得着祂的赏赐。赞美的祭是应当常常献的。不论顺境之时或是逆境之时,都要献上赞美,这样才能常常,才不至于中断。信徒超越过苦难和逆境的秘诀,就是赞美上帝。赞美的祭是应当靠着耶稣献上的。我们若凭着自己,很难在遭遇苦难的时候赞美上帝。但我们若靠着主耶稣,便无论是怎样的境遇,凡事都能作了。赞美的祭是承认主名之人嘴唇的果子。承认主名的最佳表显,便是从口里流露出赞美上帝来。马太福音12章34节说,人心里所充满的,口里就说出来。信徒的心里若充满上帝的恩典,便不能不说出赞美的话。

Hebrews 13:15 :“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.”

Today’s Meditation: Praise is a form of sacrifice by offering our honour and dishonour, evil report and good report on the altar to God without leaving anything behind. Such sacrifice is pleased by God. The sacrifice of praise should be offered to God. Most of us only know how to ask without knowing how to praise God. Don’t you know about Psalm 22:3 tells that our God has praises as His throne? We will receive more from God when we praise Him. The sacrifice of praise should be done continually. Be it good or hard time- we need to praise God all the time. The key for us to surpass adversities is by praising our God. The sacrifice of praise should be done through Christ. We can hardly praise our God in hard time if we depend on ourselves. We can do all things all the time if we rely on Christ. The sacrifice of praise is the the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to God’s name. Matthew 12:34 tells that, the mouth speaks out of the abundance of the heart. One cannot praise without being filled by the grace from God.
