The Sacrifice of Praise

Below are the seven words that make up my 2009 sermon theme along with the months that we will be exploring them. Yesterday was an exciting look at the value of the sacrifice of praise. Also spending extra time this first week of the year emphasizing prayer with more time on the listening end than the talking end since God knows everything and comparatively, I know nothing. It took me awhile in life to learn that it doesn’t make much sense for me to do all the talking in the prayer closet.

Here are the seven “SERVICE” words for 2009:

Sacrifice -January and February
Efficiency -March
Reality -April and May
Victory -June and July
Integrity -August and September
Commitment -October and November
Entrance -December

“Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. And don't forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.”
Hebrews 13:15-16
