We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.
Today’s topic: PRAISE.
Let your good deeds shine out for all to see so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. (Matthew 5:16) (NLT)
The whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” (Luke 19:37-40)
“Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked Jesus. “Yes,” he replied, “have you never read, ‘from the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise’?” (Matthew 21:16)
