God not only deserves, but He requires our praise. Pastor Ford explains today that the word “Hallelujah” conveys to Him our highest praise. God wanted a word that every Christian could use, no matter what our culture or color, no matter what our creed, and no matter what our language, and the word that He gave us is “Hallelujah!”
