    @Irene123-You are so right our praise and worship is the best thing we have to offer our God. We have a special get together every year where every single Life Church gathers and sings praises to God.You can feel his present during that time.I love giving him my all.

    The best offerings God's N.T. people can give Him is our praise and worship as we gather together in our various houses of worship - Heb. 10:25.
