Excerpt from Gratitude: An Exposition of the Hundred and Third Psalm
Master used it. And that Master ever lives, as grateful now as when He dwelt on earth. Jesus still praises God, and calls on all His disciples to join their praises with His. As our prayers ascend only through His prayers, so our praises ascend only through His thanksgivings. It is in Christ that we pray. It is in Christ that we praise. The High Priest is expressly ordained to offer both gifts and sacrifices, Heb. Viii. 3 the Visible praises, and sacrifices, the Visible prayers, of the Church. When we use this, or any other psalm, in public or in private wor ship, we can do so, with acceptance, only as members of Christ's body. The action oi' one member is regarded as the action of all, that there may be no schism in the body.
