Praise is the Great Characteristic of the True Christian Always

Praise is the great characteristic of the true Christian always, as it is the great characteristic of the New Testament and the early church. Praise and joy was not confined to the early church: if you read the long history of Christianity you will find that the note of praise and joy has been characteristic of the church in every period of revival.

Is this the characteristic note of our Christian life and witness? Is this our response to the Gospel?

We claim to be Christians. We make our public profession of faith. But in the last analysis what is the test of it all? Our willingness to praise God.
