I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord, I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the Lord.------Psalm 116:9, 13, 17
In this day and time in which we live, we are being coerced to be tolerant of other religions and faiths, while shunning the Christian faith. We as Christians are not allowed to let our children pray in schools, yet there are some schools that cater to another religion and allows them to bring their prayer rugs and provide for their children to have designated prayer times.
We are told NOT to express our Christian beliefs because we might OFFEND someone of another faith.
Well, I believe these verses gives us DIVINE guidance as to how we should conduct ourselves, as believers of the ONE AND ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD! We SHOULD live our lives in this world like the BLOOD-BOUGHT, SANCTIFIED, GLORIFIED, CHILDREN OF THE ONE AND ONLY GOD OF THIS UNIVERSE!!! And we SHOULD lift up our SALVATION and NOT be ashamed to let this SINFUL, SICK, OLD, CORRUPT WORLD know to whom we belong.
We SHOULD WILLINGLY offer up to the ONE and ONLY TRUE, LIVING GOD our SACRIFICE OF THANKSGIVING, not just once, but DAILY for He ALONE is WORTHY!
If you are NOT a believer of the ONE and ONLY TRUE and LIVING GOD, you can be by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and Is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and offer up to HIM your sacrifice of thanksgiving. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
