Two Reasons to Praise by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/20/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why were you created?

“To try and make the world a better place.”

“I was born to shop!”

“I think I really want to serve others in my life.”

Nancy: Do you ever wonder what your purpose is on this earth? I’ll tell you. We were made to bring God pleasure. That’s why we praise Him: because we were created to do it.

There’s another reason we should praise God. Praise is the number-one occupation in heaven. The apostle John sees a vision of heaven in Revelation 4 and 5. He sees more than 100 million angels who have one full-time responsibility: to worship the One who sits on the throne and the Lamb at His right hand.

When we praise the Lord, it’s like a dress rehearsal for what we’ll spend an eternity doing in heaven.

How much “practice” are you getting for that eternal concert? Are you doing what you were created to do? Are you praising God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
