When we praise God for His specific acts of goodness we are strengthened in our fellowship, assured of His fidelity, reminded of His faithfulness and it makes our praise all the sweeter to Him. God loves our praises!!
What exactly does it mean to be “in Christ”? That supernatural union is the very ground of our salvation, sanctification and perseverance. The words “In Christ” underscore the tremendous love of God and His grace toward sinners in the saving of a people to be His own for His eternal praise and glory.
