To Extol Is To Exult
C. S. Lewis wrote in Reflections on the Psalms, “I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment.” How true for us as we worship and share our joy of worship with others. Someone recently related on Facebook how much they had enjoyed a certain church worship experience, praising the sense of His presence in the service. I had attended that worship service and their praise made me rejoice in Him, completing my enjoyment of the experience. Delighting in Him is why He made us. Sharing that delight completes our enjoyment of Him.
