Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.
(Hebrews 13:15 NIV)

An instrument closed inside a dark case brings pleasure to no one. The performing artist opens the case and plays their song for the benefit
of others. An ungrateful soul bound in the darkness of unthankfulness does not please the Lord. With our life’s performance we have been set free to offer praises openly to our Savior King Jesus.
