The Benefits of Praisng God — sermon outlineBy
Thanks to Pastor David Cofield for the following wonderful sermon outline on praise and worship.
THE BENEFITS OF PRAISING GOD
1. Praise welcomes the presence of God
Psalm 22: 3 “But You are holy, who inhabit the praises of Israel.”
Psalm 100: 4 “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with
praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”
2. Praise drives away the dark spirits
Isaiah 61 the prophet is listing all the reasons the Messiah is coming and it includes
“to console those who mourn in Zion; to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy
for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;….”
Praise lifts up the fallen countenance and spirit.
3. Praise is an act of obedience to God
Hebrews 13: 15 "Let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God." Praise is

Psalm 22:23 You who fear the Lord, praise Him!
Psalm 150: 6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!
Luke 19:40 I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately

4. Praise and worship is beautiful to God
Psalm 147:1 Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is
pleasant, and praise is beautiful. Psalm 92:1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
Psalm 135:3 Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; Sing praises to His name, for
it is pleasant.
5. Praise and worship transforms the worshiper
People become like the object of their worship. Psalm 115:8 Those who make them
are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them.
Not to be changed when we leave worship by doing something different, being
somebody different or thinking different, then we have not worshipped. You can’t
come in the presence of God and remain the same.
We offer ourselves as Isaiah did, “Lord, here am I. Send me.”
“Praise is never passive, boring, dull, or inexpressive. To come to church and settle
into a comfortable seat, cross your arms, and be smug by not participating in
singing, shouting, or verbalizing praise is to fail greatly in our worship. Praise is
always exciting, expressive, exalting, enthusiastic, energetic
