How can we sing God’s praise?

Last updated on November 8, 2022

Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Creation sings God’s praise by just showing its beauty. Blossoming trees, twittering birds and impressive sunsets are like an ongoing song of worship. But how are we humans to glorify God? Of course, we can do so by singing. We’ll discuss that later. But it’s important to realize there is more.

Psalm 100 gives us some advice here. It talks about coming into God’s presence with singing; about recognizing Him as our Creator and God; about giving thanks; and about remembering and celebrating His ever-enduring love.

And there is even more. The glory of God is the underlying principle for all of our life! Even ordinary things like eating and drinking can be done so as to bring glory to God. Paul emphasizes this in 1 Corinthians 10.

Let me quote John Piper, a well-known contemporary American theologian here: ‘God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him’. Do you enjoy your relationship with Him? Do you delight in the good gifts He gives you? Then you are glorifying your Creator!
