True worship is worship of God the Father, God the Son, & God the Holy Spirit... the TRUE & LIVING God.
Truths (about worship):
God is seeking worshipers. He's not seeking worship but He is seeking worshipers. He wants a relationship with His children. He wants our heart, mind, & soul! John 4:23
True worship can only occur in & through Jesus Christ. You can only worship if you have a relationship with Jesus. Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). John 4:22, 25-26
The place for worship is everywhere. In the New Testament, we now have the Holy Spirit residing within us so God goes with us wherever we go. Thus we can worship everywhere since God is everywhere with us. Psalm 33:3
God desires sincere worship in truth. Worship must be both sincere & in truth! It can't be sincere w/o truth or true w/o being sincere or it's useless & in vain. Romans 1:18-25. True worship can only take place in & through Jesus. God is not looking for worship but worshipers.
The truth may sting a little but it sets us free! As athletes say, "No pain, no gain!" God loves us enough to tell us we're wrong. The truth hurts! 2 Timothy 4:3
As our knowledge of the truth grows so should our worship. Why is it that some worshipers get burned out the longer they walk with Christ... b/c Satan gets in & steals our worship & peace. If you've been walking with Jesus for years your worship should be "out of this world". Share your testimony/Share Jesus with others to keep your worship GREAT & to ensure you don't forget.
Our services today was on Greed and Covoutousness.
The 10th Commandment paralled to the Parable of the Rich Man in Luke 12 (?).
I didn't take notes- I'm going to have to start for these posts
But what is it that our Greed and Covoutousness say to God- that we aren't content with what he's given us. That Christ's Sacrifice isn't enough for us. There were many others, but I'll have to wait for the podcast. This one is worth a re-listen.
Jason and I have been working towards Financial Peace (getting debt free) - and we're almost there. I was thinking about what our debt says about us. It says that we aren't content. We aren't patient to wait for God's gift, it says that we're relying on ourselves to provide what we want instead of what God sees fit to provide.
Not to be prideful, but DH and I have been working on Financial Peace for some time. The first thing we did was sell our vehicles to get rid of the loans. We now drive 10 year old vehicles that have no status symbol, but we no longer have to worry about car payments. The stress has been removed. We're content with what God would have us have instead of what we think we need.
