Encouraging Words 3/11/10 Praise the Lord

From:  Love Worth Finding

“Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever.” Revelation 7:12

I heard about a man who got a little excited in a church. He kept shouting, “Praise the Lord!” One day, some of the brethren called on him while he was plowing his fields.

When they were finished talking, he hung his head and said, “I know it’s the truth. I have disturbed the services, but, you know, I sit there and think of what the Lord has done for me . . . how He died in agony and blood for me upon the cross . . . how He’s forgiven all of my sins . . . how He’s filled me with the spirit and . . . here, hold this mule while I shout!”

If being a Christian and going to heaven doesn’t excite you, you have calluses on your soul. It’s exciting to know the Lord Jesus Christ!

When was the last time you raised your hands and shouted “Praise the Lord!” Maybe right now is a good time to do just that!
