Praise in Worship

To praise God is an important facet of worship. Praise of God entered conspicuously into the worship recorded of Scriptural characters. The Psalmist said: "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.... Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name." Ps. 100:1-4;

Praise and thanksgiving are one, and those who are most conscious of the great goodness of God are most likely to express their gratitude by living the truths they acknowledge. They worship by striving to prove that God made man in His likeness. This is their praise. Christian Science makes God intimately knowable, for it silences the physical senses that deny His presence and reveals the ceaseless energies—intelligence, love, joy, justice—that constitute His man. It inspires the recognition of good in others, and this brings about unity under one Principle.
