Praise is prayer. When I lift up my heart to God to praise Him, I talk to Him and commune with Him. Prayer is not all asking. As Thomas Watson, the seventeenth-century Puritan, quaintly put it, "Many have tears in their eyes, and complaints in their mouth, but few have harps in their hand, blessing and glorifying God. Let us honor God this way. Praise is the quit-rent we pay to God: while God renews our lease, we must renew our rent."

Praise is man's legitimate and proper preoccupation with God. The late Senator Robert Kennedy visited Brazil and in the course of his trip was taken into the interior of the country to see some of the tribal situations. He was introduced, by interpretation, to an Indian who had not long been converted. "Ask him," the senator said to his interpreter, "what does he enjoy doing most?" The Indian's reply came as a surprise, "Being occupied with God." Convinced that the Indian had not understood his question, and that the answer should have been something like fishing or hunting, the senator insisted the question be repeated, but the answer came back again – "Being occupied with God." This seemingly insignificant Indian, now part of God's new creation, had discovered his chief end in life.

"Why am I here?" We all must have asked that question at times – and if not in those words, in others very similar. To understand man's chief end – the purpose of God's creation of man – we must appreciate God's design for the whole of creation, for man represents a significant part of that creation.

We can more clearly grasp His providence when we look at the storyline of the Bible from a panoramic perspective. It is only then that we can begin to see how seemingly insignificant events are woven together and form the far greater picture of God's master plan for our salvation...

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble (Ps 138:6; Prov 3:34 [cf. the Septuagint version]; Mt 18:1-4; Jas 4:6; 1 Pet 5:5). What is it about arrogance that God so abhors, and why does he regard humility so favorably?....

One of the great dangers in theology is making our faith something we discuss rather than something that moves us. We lapse into this problem when we treat God as the mere object of our study rather than as the Lord we worship...

WE ARE NOT GOD. This may seem ridiculously obvious, but much of our practice ignores this simple truth. Not only can we not control the events around us, but our understanding is inescapably incomplete. Human reflections about God are always limited by at least two key realities: our finitude and our sin. Although few Christians explicitly deny these realities, sometimes we act as though our theological reflections are free from these factors...

We enjoy God to the degree that we worship him faithfully. Faithful worship-including praise, prayer, obedience and faith-matters because idolatry, in whatever form, satisfies neither God nor us. Worship does not require that we perfectly understand everything about God but that we respond genuinely to the true God who makes himself known to us...

Dear Friend,
What an extraordinary reality we as Christians have in this assurance from the Apostle Paul! Despite our best efforts, every day we come face-to-face with our sinful nature. Nonetheless, we can find peace in the certainty that our sin has been dealt with once and for all on the cross...

For some people the question of whether or not God exists is a painful and haunting uncertainty not easily dismissed. But for most people the question is not whether God exists, but what is God like. Not whether there is a deity, but how many, and which one(s). How do we know God? Can God be trusted? Does God care? Is God good?

Many Christians have been familiar with the expression "Son of man" since they were children in Sunday school. Perhaps you were taught there that since Jesus is both God and man, the Bible calls him both "Son of God" and "Son of Man."...

Yesterday I enjoyed the privilege of addressing the student body of a local university, and tomorrow I’ll be in Michigan speaking at a student conference. Today I received a letter from a young pastor in Florida who wrote to encourage me with his news and also to ask me a question. Having spent the greater part of my life as the “young chap” seeking advice from mentors, it is quite a shift for me to realize that I am now being looked to for guidance. It is both a terrific privilege and a sobering responsibility...
