And they came to
-- Mark 11:15-17
The verses above describe one event in Jesus’ life that lets us know just how He feels about those who worship Him improperly. Jesus displayed His power that day to show us how He values genuine worship.
Today, I want to ask you, when God looks at your life, does He see genuine worship or does He see a counterfeit? Does He see something real or is it phony?
The bottom line is that each of us was made to worship God. And until we realize the true purpose in life, which is to worship Him and enjoy Him forever, we’ll always be floundering. We’ll always be frustrated because worship is the central purpose of life!
It is impossible to be a productive, positive Christian without participating in meaningful, genuine worship!
And I’m not just talking about corporate worship. Worship is something more that what we do, worship is a lifestyle. It is an attitude that we carry with us day by day. It is an activity and an attitude that reveals the inner heart and recognizes the value we place on God in our lives. That’s what worship is!
So today, let me challenge you to make your life a life of worship…an exclamation of the glory of our God!
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE A PRODUCTIVE CHRISTIAN WITHOUT GENUINELY WORSHIPPING GOD.
