I hope you have enjoyed our series on worship – we were created to worship God.
Philosophy professor Kent Dunnington writes about a paramedic he knows who received an anonymous call that a heroin addict was near death in a nearby abandoned building. When the paramedic got there, the poor man was shivering in a corner, already unresponsive and near death. The apartment was foul-smelling and littered with trash and drug paraphernalia. Kent asked his friend what it was like. The paramedic’s comment was stunning: “It was terrifying, but for the first time in my life I understood what worship looks like.” Addiction, Kent explained, is a kind of worship, a kind of counterfeit worship. For the soul was created to worship. The soul requires a center to give it identity, to have a purpose for its activities, to give it a hope and a foundation. There is no such thing as an uncommitted person.
John 10 v 7 – 10
Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Lets worship Him who gives life and worship Him with everything we have.
Have a great day!
