Concert of Praise
FOR THE BELIEVER, life is a concert of praise; indeed,
one’s whole life is a song to be sung, a melodious act of gratitude
to the One who has given us life and redeemed us by
grace. But while solos have their place, it is a chorus—the
whole company of God’s faithful people—that sings “Holy,
holy, holy Lord, God of power and might. Heaven and earth
are full of your glory.”
—Paul Wesley Chilcote, A Life-Shaping Prayer: 52 Meditations in the Wesleyan Spirit (Upper Room Books, 2008)
How can you participate in the chorus of God’s faithful people today?
“O sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all the earth.”
—Psalm 96:1 (NRSV)
