Can I Have Your Attention Please

What comes to mind when someone stands up and


“Can I have your attention please”

The intention of a Doxology is to draw Attention to

the Glory of God

The last three verses of the book of Romans are

what we usually call a doxology.

The word doxology comes from the Greek words

doxa, which means “glory”

, and logos, which

means “word”. So a doxology is a word that

ascribes glory to God.

As the Psalmist declared in Psalm 150:6,


everything that breathes praise the Lord.”

Our lives are a doxology to Jesus. Our words and

our actions draw attention to Jesus.
