Daily praise should ascend from each of us to God, as the perfume of the daily sacrifice ascended in olden times; there must not be fewer sacrifices under the new dispensation than there were under the old; we are priests to offer unto God the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving." (Pulpit Commentary) David resolved to freely sacrifice unto God. In Psalm 54:6, he said - "I will freely sacrifice unto Thee..." He was resolved to offer a voluntary offering - a freewill offering. It would be the freewill offering of his mouth - a praise offering - "the calves of his lips" (Hosea 14:2) - "the fruit of his lips" (Hebrews 13:15) - the sacrifice of praise to God. Let me ask you - do you understand your role as a Christian priest? If so, are you daily covering God's altar with your sacrifice of praise?
