Our Sacrifice of Praise is With Words by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Our Sacrifice of Praise is With Words by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

By him (Jesus Christ) therefore let us
offer the sacrifice of praise to God
continually, that is, the fruit of our lips
giving thanks to his name (Hebrews
13:15).

Just as the priest offered sacrifices of burnt
offerings and incense in the Old Testament,
today, we offer sacrifices of praise to the Lord
with the fruit of our lips, which are the words we speak
in praise and thanksgiving to Him. The underlined
expression, “giving thanks” is the Greek, “Homologeo”,
meaning to make confessions; making confessions to
His Name.

Our sacrifices of praise are with words, and they
transcend statements like, “Lord, I give you praise.” For
it to be a true sacrifice of praise to God, it must be
mixed with substance from your spirit. You must have
definite reasons for praising Him, and then voice those
reasons. Your Praise of Him must have content. In other
words, you’re to consciously praise and thank Him in
the Name of Jesus, for specific reasons.

The sacrifices of praise are confessions,
declarations, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that
you render to Him for His love, grace and goodness
towards you. They also refer to tributes or speeches that
acknowledge and celebrate His majesty; confessions
of His Word that we make to glorify Him. These
confessions are the fruits and calves of our lips—words
from our mouths that give glory to God.

Therefore, when making confessions, say
beautiful things about the Lord and give testimonies of
His wondrous works. Proclaim what He has said about
Himself and about you: “…for he hath said…So that we
may boldly say…” (Hebrews 13:5-6).

As you make those confessions in Jesus’ Name,
He (Jesus), as our Great High Priest, presents them
before the Father, who receives your praise and
worship as a sacrifice of a sweet-smelling savour.
Hallelujah!
