“Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!” Psalms 34: 3
Before we list out the 3 things we should consider in having a contagious praising, we must first detour and remind ourselves of why we want others to come and praise God. In this way we can fully understand why praising is contagious.
Of course we can praise God individually. We can actually have a personal dealing with God that will overflow with joy that is acceptable with God. However, we shouldn’t limit it as a personal experience only. We are lead to come and praise together.
Why Praise Together?
- Because Christianity is an accountability religion.
We are accountable to lead people to salvation. We are accountable to lead people to sanctification. If we consider that Jesus Christ is the ultimate joy and we express our joy to Him by praising Him, the logic will flow that we are accountable in leading people to praising Him. Salvation and sanctification are the gates to see Christ as joyous and praiseworthy.
