10 Steps to Better Worship

Posted 9/3/2017

One of my greatest desires is that God would finally receive the worship He deserves.  Of course, this kind of worship is happening right now in the throne room of heaven, but I long to see our heavenly Father’s name hallowed on earth as it is in heaven.  Have you ever experienced transcendent worship?  A worship experience where you absolutely knew that you had been in the presence of the Almighty; and you were overwhelmed by His holy majesty?  Where you were dethroned and He was exalted?  Where you wanted nothing more than for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done in you as it is in heaven?  Where He spoke to you?  Such moments are an other-worldly foretaste of eternity.  This type of holy encounter is true worship from God’s perspective.  And, in those moments when God receives the worship He deserves from us, we receive His very best for us.  Did you worship last Sunday or just attend a worship service?

In Your presence there is fullness of joy;

in Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 16.11

To Be Continued

Posted 5/16/2017

Christian, no matter how you started, you must continue in Jesus’ word.  The truth is known through continuing in Jesus’ word.  The freedom that flows from the truth is exclusively promised to those who continue in Jesus’ word.  There can be no real freedom without knowing the truth Jesus offers to those who continue with Him.

This idea of continuing has its precedent in the concept of faithfulness in the Old Testament.  God expected His covenant people to be faithful to Himself and all that He commanded.  When they remained faithful, God blessed them.  When they were unfaithful, God handed them over to the consequences of their rebellion.  It wasn’t enough that they were descendants of Abraham; they had to remain faithful in their generation.  The rules have not changed.  In the New Testament, the apostle Paul warns that we must learn the lesson from those who did not remain faithful (or didn’t continue) and avoid making the same mistake:


Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness toward you, provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off.    Romans 11.22
