Wrong Church, Right Pew!

A woman who "enjoyed her salvation" visited a very staid and formal church. "Amen!" she said as the preacher brought out a point with which she agreed.

"Madam," said the usher standing nearby, "please try to restrain yourself. We don't allow that in this church."

In a few minutes she was so carried away by the sermon that she shouted, "Amen! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!"

The usher rushed to her side: "Madam! You must quiet down immediately or leave!"

"I didn't mean to disturb the service, but I am just so happy since I found the Lord," she explained.

" You may have found the Lord," retorted the usher severely, "but I am quite sure you didn't find Him here!"

Psalm 150:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
Psalm 150:6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
Psalm 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
Psalm 32:11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
Psalm 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
Psalm 132:9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
Ezra 3:11 And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid.
Rev. 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Rev. 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Rev. 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

Bro. Jim,

There are so many churches that are dead and never praise the Lord. With so many blessings from the Lord, how can we not shout praise to His name. Thanks for the post.

Bro. Rod,

God gives life.... our desire as Christians should be to praise Him. I enjoy hearing the praises of my fellow Christians while in church!!!
