The more we can ______________________________ our brokenness, the greater the ___________________ of Christ’s _________________________________________ will be in us.

Lack of praise is _____________________________________ with a redeemed and forgiven life.

Salvation isn’t just about what happens _____________________, it is also about living in _____________________________________________.

Ephesians 1:9-10

They mystery of God is that He has and is bringing _________________________________ together (again)___________________________________________.

Praise means ___________________________________ our lives with Jesus’ purposes.
