Hallelujah! Compose new songs of praise to be lifted up with enthusiasm when we gather together to worship and when we are alone in our homes. Be glad in the Lord; rejoice! Make music, dance and sing because he has pleasure in our praise. Let us, the humble he has adorned with salvation, exult in testimony to his glory, singing for joy with the high praise of God coming from our hearts to our song.
In the midst of our praise let us also always be ready for battle against our enemies, the world culture that would conform us to be just like everyone else, our own flesh that wants its own way and Satan himself – all seeking to pull us away from God. This war is real and continuous. We fight always, in the grace and strength of our God.
Praise the Lord!
