Sunday Morning ~ Rise and Shine and give God the glory.
1) Do I feel like it? No
2) Can I roll over and skip SS and just catch the service? No
3) Will I throw something on and go a mess? No
4) Am I going so to be entertained, socialize or “Praise”? NO
Sunday morning, when I WORSHIP as His Word instructs, when I give God my best, regardless of feelings. Once a week to gather with fellow believers and WORSHIP who God IS!
We have become so comfortable in PRAISE for what God DOES! The void in every human that was created by the fall of man can only be filled by God through His Holy Spirit. We need WORSHIP.
We approach God with our sacrifice. No longer required of first born sheep, best goat, etc. but, still we approach with our best.
IF we get up for work or school earlier in the week, why would we give Him less on Sunday and sleep in?
IF we spend time to be neat, clean, appropriately attired and dressed to a “code” for the job or class, why would we give God less?
My clothes may be old but, clean and holes mended; my shoes wiped clean though out of style. My hair only brushed and nails only filed but, if it’s my best how can I offer Him less?
I taught my children, I’ll teach my grands what God wants is for us to WORSHIP and give Him our best, not less.
We need to WORSHIP. It’s easy to Praise Him for what He does. But, to Worship Him as Savior, Sanctifier, Healing and Coming King is humbling. His Sanctification of us through His sovereign plan, His Healing us in His time, all comes from who He IS.
I need to WORSHIP and out of worship I will know how to fully Praise Him. Worship is about God and who He is.
Sunday morning for me, when He calls His saints to gather and WORSHIP. Rise and shine.
