Lift Up Jesus - King Of Glory


"I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders; I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name O Most High" (Ps.9:1-2).

Have we lifted Jesus today as the King of Glory? What a great way to start each day! Lets look today at several different perspectives that we might take about praise. In the thirteenth chapter of 2 Chronicles, King David is bringing back the ark of God the Lord to Israel. To the people, this meant that God was "coming back home."David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, cymbals and trumpets." (V 8). Our praise to the Lord should be that same kind of homecoming. When the Lord is in our hearts we should want to praise. We do indeed serve a risen Savior and our praise to Him is an invitation for Him to come into our hearts. Just as the ark came back to where it belonged, Jesus belongs in our hearts and with that there should be praise. We should look at the homecoming of Jesus in a very special and personal way. He is coming into my heart! This relationship is one that will last until He comes a second time. Harry D. Clarke wrote a very simple song in 1924 about Jesus coming home...
"Into my heart, Into my heart, Come into my heart Lord Jesus;
Come in today, Come in to stay, Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
."


This song may be on our hearts for the rest of the day, and rightly so...Let us all give praise to our Wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ today.....And EVERY DAY! When we do, our lights will shine brightly for Him and we will have an opportunity to be His witness...Have you lifted up Jesus as the King of Glory yet today?

Have a great day...Let His light shine within you..... Love mark Phil. 4:11
