What Is Worship To You?

In 1953 a group gathered at a train station to meet the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

As he walks off the train people greet him, reporters, cameras and all.

He excused himself to help an elderly black lady who was struggling with her suitcases.  After he got her on the bus, he returned to the welcoming committee.

His name was Albert Switzer he worked with the poor in Africa,  it was then brought to his attention that  it was the first time they had seen a “walking sermon”.

What is worship to you?

Matthew 7 says we need to do more than just say lord lord.

Is worship just showing up on Sunday morning?

Worship without the walk is useless

Malachi 1:6 Says a servant honors the master.

We should only bring each of our best to the lord to honor him.

God refused to accept less than perfect sacrifice, our life is a sacrifice to God.

Our time is the greatest sacrifice for that we can not regain. Money is important but it is replenish able time is not, don’t waste it.

Do good and share with others as it is pleasing to God and is worship to God.

Jesus set the example of how we should take care of others when he washed the disciples feet.

The only way our worship is acceptable is by being a servant to God in heaven.

We serve other because god asks us to.

Would Jesus look at your life and say good job faithful servant?

Is your life a walking sermon and is it a life of worship?

We are blessed are we serving the master or just being served?


Thoughts inspired by Luke 5

We must do what Jesus asks in faith and we will be blessed and sometimes even overwhelmed. In order to be fishers of men we must trust in Gods words.

We must give all or “launch to the deep to ensure total trust in God”.

How deep is the love of Christ?

Put your life and spirt to the deep and let down our nets when we are wearyest is when the largest catch will come.

We cannot catch anything worth keeping without Jesus.

Faith is, going against your better judment knowing you are being led by God.

We realize how sinful and inadequate we are in the glory of God.

Jesus and God are not bound by mans limitations.

Do we recognize beauty?

What are we missing?

Do we notice the miraculas going on around us?

Does our sin motivate us to worship?

Do we have a sense of gods invitation for forgiveness?

Are you washed in the blood or just the water is Jesus real to you?

When was the last time we were so amazed that we said we are not worthy?

Have faith not fear and…..trust.

We all have a portion of the net to pull in, are you pulling the net in with faith or sitting by and watching life go by ignoring that there is an end and you are not ready or worthy to receive your reward.

Are you willing to leave all behind all to follow him? Answer your spiritual phone Jesus is calling!

This Weeks Message

Thank you Lord for allowing us to worship you.

Thank you for giving us courage whenever we fear.

We don’t like to wait we like everything right now. Isaiah looked to the future for comfort. God you are everlasting, you supply us with strength. Those who wait will be given strength from you. Whenever Gods people go through a rough time we expect God to fix it now. Those that wait upon the Lord are rewarded.

Wait on the Lord.

Psalms encourages us to wait on the Lord. Do not fret because of mans deeds the Lord will answer them as well. For God there is no beginning and no end he knows what is best for us and when.

Trust his perfect timing. relying on ourselves only brings trouble. We need to keep faith. God has a plan for us let not try to get ahead of him as it will prove nothing but trouble.

We will wait knowing God will deliver. We need to allow the Spirit to lead and guide us. We are ok with whatever you decide Lord. We have joy and hope in you. Keep our spirits conscious in you and allow them not to be impatient but to be at peace with your decision.

Teach us Lord to wait.

We may not get what we ask for but we always get what we need!

Thank You!

Jeremy Camp “I wait for the Lord”

Report From The Pulpit

Help us to understand you and that through our worship that our love to you will become extreamly obvious!

Sometimes its hard to feel God around us due tot he overwhelming struggles in our lives.

It is easy to see Gods love when our lives are going great.

In Deu 32:11 Moses delivers his farewell speech. Moses compares God to the watch of an eagle guiding its young to fly.

Maybe God stirs up our lives to inspire us to grow up and get in control of our lives through complete trust in him and that even if we stumble he will catch us.

God does not want us to become too comfortable as we may become lazy in the pursuit of expanding or introducing his kingdom to others.

Gos loves us. He takes us to new heights that we could only dream of. He takes us there to inspire us to contiue the good fight to one day be there with him.

God will uphold us in his right hand.

Even when we complain that God could not possibly be looking out for us…. Maybe he is just stirring up our nests to keep us aware of our need for him no matter how well we were doing.

Reported by Greg

We are not in control of our lives nor were we ever, God is in control! He is God and we are mere humans and we must learn to rely on the creator of the universe, or in some cases remember how…

Do not fear only believe.

We may not get what we want but we do get what we need when we allow God to be in control of our lives, he will provide.

Let us go into the world looking at others equally and to restore those less fortunate than you or I to a level playing field where we can all worship God as his servants and children in total submission.

Let us not panic but instead rely on your strength to ride out the storms in our lives.

When we are in fear it seems as though there may be little to hold on to but our faith in you will get us through any field of giants we may face.

Thank you for our family of faith and that they remember us even when we seem to forget you. Thank you for their faith and prayers!

Let us give all our lives to Jesus and to leave our trust in him.

GIVE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE TO OUR LORD!
