We were made for worship

23 01 2010

Recently as I listened to Timothy Johnson of Latter Glory Ministry he made a profound statement: We were made for worship, and because we were made for worship we will always worship something or someone.

Jesus told his disciples in Luke 24:34; “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

            Our treasure is what we worship. and as we go from one worship experience to the next, whether it is our first bicycle, first boy or girl friend or  video game, spending hours interacting with it.

            Over and over again we see in scripture how Jesus went away and spent time with the Lord. Jesus knew something we often miss; time is a form of worship.

        I have spent the better part of a three days sewing, and the more I sew, the more I want to sew. Worship is that way, always bringing about more worship. It is why we must choose to spend time with the Lord as Jesus did, getting away from every distraction and spending time with the Lord.

            Worship fills my cup to overflowing and strengthens me, so I am once again ready to pour out to the world around me. That is the regenerating property of worship which energizes us. Both things and people we worship can zap our strength, when we see this, we need to realize we are worshiping the wrong thing and turn once again to our God.

            Sewing is that way for me. After three days, I am tired of sewing and I don’t want to look at another piece of fabric, so I must take time and worship God.

             I leave you with this question; What are you worshipping?

Blessings and Complete Joy,
