The ONE THING for today

Lessons at the Bush: On Worship

burning-bush-framedExodus 3:5 (NKJV)

Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.

 The more you learn about God the more reverent you become.

The moment you become distracted and fascinated by lesser things you begin to commit idolatry for all idolatry is is allowing something else to come between you and God.

A sure sign that you are drifting is when your worship becomes stale and routine. You may be going through the motions of worship but your heart has moved on to other things.

  • The ONE THING for today: The main priority of your worship, both public and private is to learn more about God. Any other benefits are secondary and must never be the motivation behind your pursuit of God.

 

“Your heart’s EGO – Edging God Out or Exalting God Only?”

_Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges, Lead Like Jesus, p. 40

One thought on “Lessons at the Bush: On Worship

  1. Great thoughts! I’m praying that my one and only love would be Christ. It is so easy to make idols out of everything including church activities. The temptations and distractions are everywhere. I know I’m not alone here. May God challenge all who read this as He has challenged me.
