The 3rd Tuesday in Lent 2019

That they may declare in Zion the name of the LORD, and in Jerusalem His praise. Psalm 102:21

In God’s grace to hear us in the midst of our earthy sojourn, besieged by sin and death, we are enabled to love as called.

The first step in responding to God’s love for us is adoration of Him, worship.

Worship means our time, every step of our lives dedicated to the worship of God.

This means the Word of the Lord guides the way we go about life, the way we treat others, enemies and friends alike.

We as His servants even in afflictions declare the name of the LORD as supreme, as holy above all else.

God lifts up our heads even while undergoing adversity to praise His Name, to declare His Name to the ends of the earth.

When we make such declarations, especially in Zion, in the Church, we not only find His grace in obedience, we also lift up our fellow Christians that may be afflicted as well.

His praise lift us up.

His praise lifts others up.


Dear Heavenly Father, assist us with your grace to declare your Name in your Church and throughout the world. Help us to praise you among your people. Help us to encourage each other in our worship of you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
