Praising God is the best activity we can do now and for eternity. It is also our privilege because God has done so many great things for us. He created the universe, Heaven, and earth for us. God sent Jesus to us, who died on the cross to ransom us from our sins. Now, when we believe in Jesus, we can have eternal life.
We praise God because He has done so much already and have faith that He will continually give us eternal happiness.

I praise God with gratitude for what Jesus has done
Don’t be drunken with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always concerning all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father; subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of Christ.
While the early church was praising God, many people joined them believing in Jesus

I gratefully praise the Lord
The LORD is my strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices. With my song I will thank him.
