December 6 – Christians Should Re-Direct Praises To God
Christians must avoid self-praise, as our glorification must only be expressed in God. Since Christ is our all-in-all, we must ensure that we glorify him in all situations, and at all times. The scriptures admonished, “For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh” (Philippians 3:3).
We Christians have no other pride than Jesus Christ; therefore, we must rejoice in him always. We must abstain from self-glorification, but direct all honor to the Lord! The Savior has blessed us with his immeasurable grace of salvation, and has also, promised us an imperishable crown of glory in heaven. Hence, believers must dance before him and celebrate his goodness from now till eternity.
Dear Jesus Christ, what an awesome Lord you are! You sacrificed your life to save my soul! I will praise you from now on. I will sing, dance, and proclaim your goodness throughout the earth. I am determined to shun self-praise, but give you due honor throughout the days of my life. So help me God! Amen.
