By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.
Paul is encouraging his listeners and all today to continually offer praises to God which is the fruit of our lips as this should be the first order of business in the morning and the last at night; simply because God's goodness is continually imparted to us. Constant praise and worship to God is an expression of Christians' gratitude for all God has done, is doing and will continue to do in our lives.
Most importantly, God is worthy of all praises for providing salvation through His Son Jesus Christ to all who believe on Jesus. God and His love did not leave His people alone to live holy lives and obey His commandments; He indwelt us with the His Spirit the Holy Spirit. He provides for all our need both physical and spiritual. God of the universe never sleeps nor slumber; you can call Him anytime day or night and never get a busy signal. He stands ready to hear and answer our cry. What a good God?
Who would fail to give God continued praises; one who is immutable, who has no beginning or ending? A wise man will say this is the God of my salvation and I will praise Him for His goodness and will give Him endless thanks.
Only God the creator and sustainer of the universe is worthy of all praises.
