You may ask yourself why am I here or why was I born? Do I really have to suffer like this and struggle or just exist here in life?
God created us human beings for a purpose, and that purpose is to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
Life is not about you and I, but sometimes I wonder, because of the self centeredness we are taught and bombarded with in our culture. Even the church can cop an attitude that has drifted into a consumerism mentality. Church services can tend to be more about ‘how I feel’, especially in the latest music worship trends and some of the teachings.
There is such a lack of substance about God, His attributes and character. The music is becoming more like a romance novel rather than worshipping the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
Believers are following pastors and teachers more out of a ‘personality cult’ or popularity contest rather than being taught and fed by a true shepherd with sincere motives.
I have always lived by the motto that I attend church where I get fed. I prefer meat and substance that points me to Jesus Christ and not fill up on junk food with no substance. Junk food has no nutritional value for my spiritual hunger and thirst.
God wants to be worshipped because He is a jealous God. Jealous in a good way like a parent who loves their children. He does not like when we choose idols over Him. Sometimes these idols are about us or even worshipping angels, which grieves God the Father.
“The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.”
Hebrews 1:3 NLT
“This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.“
Hebrews 1:4 NLT
Worship is not designed about how I feel or my preference, but rather who God is and that He alone is glorified. We are not to put any idols before God , but to acknowledged that God is holy and we are to worship the King of kings and The Lord of Lords.
Our heart must be right when we worship God and we should confess any sins known and unknown to God through Christ the redeemer.
‘Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands and millions of angels around the throne and of the living beings and the elders. And they sang in a mighty chorus:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered— to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.”
And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang: “Blessing and honor and glory and power belong to the one sitting on the throne and to the Lamb forever and ever.” ‘
Revelation 5:11-13 NLT
My friend, be real and genuine because that’s the best way to be trusted. May God’s blessing be with you today!
