Psalm 145:1-9 – DETERMINED TO HONOR GOD

(This is a possible New Year’s Sermon but is appropriate any time!)

As Christians, we should be determined to honor God, by loving Him and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Mark12:29

Honoring God also means honoring His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Hebrews 13:15

In Psalm 145:1-9, King David speaks of his determination to honor God. This is a good determination, that those who are born again Christians should have. Along with David, may we say, “I WILL!”

(PLEASE NOTE: I am suggesting two different sets of outlines here. You may choose which one you are most comfortable with, or you could use both! Let the Lord lead you!)
