Go get your praise on

I have been thinking about this all week.......What is the chief end of man? Yeah I know pretty heavy duty thinking. According to the Westminster catechism. It's to honor God and love Him forever.

I had a thought this week that I could not seem to shake and the more I thought it the more I realize it was a question from God to me........

What is church really all about?........Learning? Outreach? Worship? Fellowship? Is church about what I do? Or is it about what I get when I'm there? Is the morning hour wasted if no one accepts Christ? Is it wasted if I don't learn? These are good thoughts to meditate on. It should drive me to Scripture to find answers.

Revelations 4:11- You created everything, and it is for your pleasure they exist and were created. News flash. I was created for God's pleasure. My worship is more about him and less about me. He's most honored when I have filled up in my heart with how good He is.

Romans 12:1- Present yourself to him as an act of worship. Worship is not doing for God. It's being for God. When I realize that there isn't much I can do for Him to impress Him, that's when I realize it's more about knowing Him. I'm not "saving" anyone. He does that. God's much more happy with me when I'm am longing to know Him with all I have. All my acts of service flow out from how much I love Him. Leave it to us to turn our Chrsitian journey into a works based contest.

These are my thoughts on a Sunday morning. I'm gonna go to church, and open up my heart to praise Him. I'm gonna take one uninterrupted hour this week to tell Him how great He is. It's gonna be an hour that is not about what I do for Him, but what He has done for me.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go blast some CeCe Winans while I get ready. It's never too early to get your praise on!
