Worship is not a what, it’s a Who. Worship is how we express our love for God, our faith in Him, our trust in Him, and our obedience to Him. It is the attitude we choose despite anything we are going through – we focus on God and His character, not our circumstances. It’s all about God and what we can give back to Him because of His great mercy and the fact that nothing can separate us from His love.
Who are your people? We know it’s important to be connected, but it’s hard to build lasting friendships. God did not design us to go through life alone. He designed us to be in relationship with one another. Fellowship means having authentic, significant relationships with others, which reflects our love for God. In God’s family, everyone is accepted and belongs.
The world has us chasing happiness. At the end of the day, though, the pursuit of happiness will often leave us feeling empty and weary. Instead of pursuing what my desires are, we instead need to seek how God designed us to live. We do this by studying His Word, through prayer, tithing, and consistent meeting with other believers. Growing in our faith is a journey, not a destination.
We are most like Jesus when we serve. Whether you’re people-oriented or task-oriented, outgoing or quiet, there is a place in the body of Christ for you to give away your gifts. Each person is equipped by God to meet a need in others. When you discover your sweet spot, serving other becomes a joy, not a job.
If you discovered the cure for cancer, would you keep it a secret? If you found a way to feed millions of starving people, would you be afraid to share it? God has poured out His amazing love in our lives. But this is not for our benefit alone. He has appointed EACH one of His people to share the Good News with those who do not yet know.
