The Essence Of Praise. RCCG Sunday School. 5/09/2021



Memory Verse: “I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart, I will shew forth all thy marvellous works”- Psalm 9:1.
Bible Passage: Psalm 67: 3-7.



In our day-to-day dealing with ourselves, thanksgiving and praises are considered very important especially when we receive any help from anyone. This show of appreciation usually acts as an impetus to receiving similar assistance or gift in future. We as Christians should know that God who is our Father loves us even more than our earthly father does.


The only thing we can do in order to show our appreciation is by praising Him no matter the circumstances that come on our way. We must cultivate the habit of praising God and thanking Him all the days of our lives. The first principle a Christian should learn, should be how to develop the habit of praising God. (Psalm 105:1-3).

Why Should we praise God? 

If we want our lives to be full of miracles and wonders, it is necessary for us to know that the formula is in praising God. The attributes of God are sufficient reasons for us to praise him. That is one reason the angels praise God continually. (Is. 6:3). God’s holiness is linked with His Glory, He is glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders (Ex. 15:11).


When we praise God, we have victories over our enemies(Ps. 18:3). We should praise God for His goodness and His wonderful works (Psalms 107:8). If we praise God, He will take note and this will gladden His Heart (Psalm 22:3). God is righteous and His righteousness demands that we should praise Him. (Psalm 7:17).


God is a jealous God and His jealousy demands that we must show His sovereignty over all things by praising him (Ex. 34:14). He is the only One and demands for Himself alone worship and praisers to which He has a right. (Ex. 20: 3-4). Praise is an acceptable sacrifice before God. (Heb. 13:15). 



Dangers of Ingratitude

Ingratitude is the result of vain imagination and a darkened heart. Sometimes your thanksgiving is senseless to the ordinary person but it is more profitable to be thankful than to grumble or complain. (Romans 1:12; Prov. 15:8). There are several reasons people are ungrateful to God. Sin or spiritual blindness (Eph. 4:17-18). Refusal to take account of what God has done (Romans 1:21), Pride (Acts 12:21-23). 



Every act of ingratitude comes with its attendant danger. Risk of losing the existing blessing, salvation and Heaven (Matt. 25: 24,5,30). Limiting one’s blessing or answered prayers (Luke 17:12;16:19). It could result in emptiness and sorrow(Proverbs 15:13;17:22) thereby, making restoration practically difficult. 


Showing gratitude to God ensures continuous divine presence and fellowship.
