                                                          PRAISE AND WORSHIP
I promised to take you through three main areas in this lesson of PRAISE AND WORSHIP. And these are   Praise, Worship and    Music in praise and worship

This week we are going to start exploring more about praise. I have categorized this part of the lesson as follows

  1. Introduction
  2. Why do we have to praise?
  3.  How should we praise?
  4. The power of praise
  5.   Some bible verses about praise  

Let us begin with the definition of praise right from the dictionary. Here are few definitions.
  1.   To express a warm approval of or admiration for
  2.     Express respect and gratitude towards a deity (a god or a goddess)
  3.    To glorify (a god or a saint) especially by the attribute of perfection   

    II.            I can combine the three definitions and say that “Praise is a warm approval, admiration, expression of respect and gratitude, glorifying God by the attribute of perfection” I have used just God because this lesson is about Praising and worshiping the one and only true living God who is worthy!! Praising God is the act of appreciation, recognizing the true value of God, his significance. It is not easy to know the exact greatness of God but we all know for sure that God is beautiful beyond description, above what our minds can comprehend.
Rev 4:8(NIV) says “8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying:
"Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come."

The four living creatures give glory, and honor and thanks to God.  (Verse 9 says: “Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever…") if i can put one word to describe what these four living creatures are doing, I can say "praise". They are praising God and in verse 8 the bible says that the four living creatures do this day and night and they never stop.
So it means every time is the time to praise God.
We are going to continue with this lesson next week so stay tuned!!
