“I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.” (Psalm 145:1-3)
Everyone who places faith in Jesus Christ as Savior enters into a loving relationship with God. (See “Message“.) The natural expression of love for God is praise and worship, which is what we were created for. “…the people I [God] formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise” (Isaiah 43:21).
When I experience and remember all of God’s goodness to me, I cannot help but to respond to him in worship! God is so great, so good, so loving, so faithful, so merciful, so compassionate…the list is endless. The list of great things he has done for me is also endless, and therefore, so are my praises of him.
The jar symbolizes the spirit of a believer, a vessel of God. The gold inside the jar symbolizes the indwelling presence of God. The colors represent the many facets of praise, worship, adoration, exultation, thanksgiving, etc. unto God. The gold amongst the colors also symbolizes the presence of God, who inhabits the praises of his people (Psalm 22:3).
