Filled with Praises

“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”—Hebrews 13:15 KJV

J. Wilbur Chapman became a pastor and evangelist who also wrote hymns. One of his most inspired moments occurred when he tried to describe the praise in his heart because of what Jesus had done for him. It was a hymn called “One Day.”

Chapman expressed the many ways Jesus changed his life: “One day when Heaven was filled with His praises, one day when sin was as black as could be, Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin, dwelt amongst men, my example is He!”

He realized, “Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me; buried, He carried my sins far away; rising, He justified freely forever; one day He’s coming.” What a glorious day that will be!

He recalled how Jesus was led up Calvary’s mountain and nailed to die on the tree. But through His death, He bore our sins and became our Redeemer. The grave could conceal Him no longer. He arose, conquered death, and “now is ascended, my Lord evermore!”

Chapman urges us to remember that Jesus is coming again. This will be such a wonderful day, and he wants spend eternity with Jesus.

This same Jesus is yours too. He died for your sins. He rose again, so you might have life, and He’s coming again—for you! Fill your life with praise. Worship Him. Commit your life to our wonderful Savior. He is worthy of all praise!
