Can an unsaved person offer true thanksgiving to God? The writer to the Hebrew Christians answers the question in this text. Only the believer-priest can offer true thanksgiving to God because it requires a right standing before God. Those who are justified by faith alone have this standing. The writer also encourages those who are saved to respond in words of praise and works of compassion as the fruit of a regenerated heart. Christians have to chose to offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually.
