“O my people, listen as I speak.
I do not need the bulls from your barns
or the goats from your pens.
For all the animals of the forest are mine,
and I own the cattle on a thousand hills.
I know every bird on the mountains,
and all the animals of the field are mine.
“Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God,
and keep the vows you made to the Most High.
Then call on me when you are in trouble,
and I will rescue you,
and you will give me glory.”
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said,
“I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.”
So we can say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper,
so I will have no fear.
What can mere people do to me?”
Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.
Psalm 50:7, 9-11, 14-15; Hebrews 13:5-6, 15-16 NLT
Everything we have comes from you, and belongs to you!
Today, we bring you the sacrifice of worship. We put aside everything stop to praise you.
We praise you because you are God, and we praise you because you are Father.
We praise you because you are Saviour, and praise you because you are Lord!
Lord, all glory and honour be yours forever and ever, Amen!
