The Doxology

Praising God, Son and Holy Ghost

Ps 148-150 In reading these last three chapters in Psalms, we recall what we learned as children, known as the Doxology sung after communion or at the beginning of service to set our minds and hearts to a mode of worship. The word doxology is made up of two Greek words: doxa and logos. Doxa means glory, splendor, or grandeur and logos means word or speaking.  It recalls The Lord’s Supper and this verse:  “after supper they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.” [Matt 26:30]

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

(He is the source of our blessings recalling: Psa 133:2 It is like fine oil poured on the head, which flows down the beard—Aaron’s beard, and then flows down his garments.”

Praise Him, all creatures here below

 Ps 148 reminds us that we are all created by Him and for Him so that we may bring Him glory.

Praise Him above the Heavenly host

Hebrews 1 is all about the angelic beings praising God and one day in glory we and the angels will be sitting around the throne praising God. Revelation 1 and beyond speaks to that.

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost

The Godhead, the Triune God!

Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen

Today take some time out to sing the doxology to set your mind to praising God.
