The sacrifice of praise?...really?
Hello everyone, welcome.
Hebrews 13:15 says, "Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.
say what????.... i mean like seriously? is that possible? does that make sense? These are the questions that pop into my head each time i come across these scripture or hear someone quote it. i have heard some explanation of this scripture still these two words "sacrifice" and "praise" placed side by side like that get me thinking... how does one give a sacrifice of praise? I and am sure a lot of other Christians too think of sacrifice as offering something at great cost to ourselves, giving something at a very inconvenient time. like for example if i had just enough money to feed myself and i saw someone in need and had to give up that money for their feeding or any thing else,that would be a sacrifice. while the word praise would mean to say something good about some one so help me out here, how do these two go together? why would the bible ask and expect us to put these two together? well i have done a little study and i think i have found an explanation but i would like to hear from you,so please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section,and ill be back to share mine (what i found). tata!
