Praise Him! Praise Him!

Hosanna! – Matthew 21:9; Mark 11:9; John 12:13

You that have not yet received Him, we want you to join with the rest of us in honoring Him and glorifying Him as He comes into your heart. “Oh!” saith one, if He will only come into my heart I will indeed praise Him.” Have your Vivas ready! Receive the Lord Jesus Christ with all honors. Mention His name with rejoicing. Have your Hurrah ready to welcome the King, the Conqueror, as He enters your soul. Be jubilant! Be enthusiastic! Rejoice that such a one as He should come to dwell with such a one as you and bring such blessing with Him. Praise Him! Praise Him! Extol Him in the highest heavens! Then pray to Him. “Save, Lord! Save, oh, save!” Then pray for others to Him in the same words, “Hosanna; save, Lord, save!”

And when you have done with Hosannas and prayers, conclude as the Psalmist did in that famous hundred-and-eighth Psalm, wherein he cried, “Bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.” Ask God of His love to-day to bind you to Christ, the altar, with one of those wreaths of love and ribands of triumphant grace which you now throw at His feet. Oh, for a twisted garland of mercies, the roses of gladness, and the lilies of delight, to bind our heart to Christ for ever! These cords of love may seem weak, but in very deed they hold us faster than chains of steel. Nothing holds a man like the silken cord of gratitude. When you know how Jesus loves you, when you see how He died for you, then you are drawn to love Him in return, and are held to serve Him in life, in death, and to eternity. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
