|Hebrews 13:15: Sacrifice of Praise|

"By him [Jesus] therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name" (Hebrews 13:15).
Because Jesus suffered alone and in disgrace, let us gladly share his reproach, by His grace, giving up continually the sacrificial offering of praise to God. Let the fruit of our lips be praise to His name. Further sacrifical offerings include doing good deeds and communicating with others (paraphrase of Hebrews 13:12-16).
What would a church look like that kept its lips busy in praise, always using this means of communicating among themselves, with others, and with God?
Offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually.
