Matthew 21:9 “Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the LORD!’ Hosanna in the highest!””
With Unfollowed Praise!
Great praise comes from graciousness, flowing from vessels whose frames made of clay for HIS NAMESAKE so sing!
Found daily unfettered, unchained and unbending…so stretch they ahead of the instruments played!
Unwilling to wait for another — more zealous — so run they instead as the spark for the Rest.
Igniting our passions for CHRIST so these leaders will follow alone those examples HE gave! Let us rise then and likewise…lead all to lift praise!
Sing Hosanna in the highest to the LORD, oh my soul!
As HIServant reminded to daily lift my voice both often and boldly with HIS praises,
Devotional : Psalm 146:1-2 “Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul! I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my GOD while I have my being!”
Leading ourselves out of silent shadows and the gray of indifference is our own responsibility!
We are not to sit idly by until some pied piper of praise passes us and then…we join along at some level.
Consider carefully Ephesians 5:19-21!
“Address one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the LORD with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to GOD the FATHER in the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for CHRIST.”
When we sing our worship songs to our SAVIOUR, others hear and are encouraged to join in.
When we do so from the right heart space, then such transparency empowers others to follow in the same footprints of CHRIST that we’re in! So memorize Psalm 96:1 and repeat it daily to yourself, oh my soul!
“Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!”
Amen and amen!
