Living like a believer means living in thankfulness, fulfilment, victory, etc. by faith. Thus, I don’t give sacrifices to fix things between me and Gd but to thank Him that He fixed it a loooooong time ago so I don’t have to worry about it.
Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
Acknowledge His name! This is not a command, but it should be a response. Do you know that free people do not like to be told what to do? They never do. Yet, they love talking about things they love. There is no command that force them to, yet that is all you hear from them! If you do not talk about the greatness of God, no command is going to make you! On the other hand…… If you realise what Christ have done for you, living in it…… You will not be able to be stopped.
Come on believers. Let’s start living in what we believe! Let’s spend time in His presence so we can enjoy the power of His presence. Do not be deceived, if you think God owes you anything, or do not live up to His promises, you have been spending too much time with Yourself.
