Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

January 18, 2011 (praising Him)

praising Him

“We praise what we enjoy
because the delight is incomplete
until it is expressed in praise.
If we were not allowed
to speak of what we value,
and celebrate what we love,
and praise what we admire,
our joy would not be full.
So if God loves us enough
to make our joy full,
He must not only give us Himself;
He must also win from us
the praise of our hearts –
not because He needs
to store up some weakness in Himself
or compensate for some deficiency,
but because He loves us
and seeks the fullness of our joy
that can be found only
in knowing and praising Him,
the most magnificent of all Beings.”
- John Piper
