Why “The Praise Factory”?
The idea for the Praise Factory came from a psalm–Psalm 100.
“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His:
We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise;
Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the LORD is good and His love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through all generations.”
Psalm 100 encourages us to be manufacturers of noisy joy (v.1) unto the Lord. To sing (v. 2); to know (v.3); and to worship Him with thanksgiving and praise (v.4), that the witness of His great faithfulness might continue through all generations (v.5).
Soli Deo Gloria!
