​Is worship without knowledge a dangerous thing? #FoodForThought

Psalm 19:1-2

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.

Acts 14:15
“Men! What are you doing? We are merely human beings like yourselves! We have come to bring you the Good News that you are invited to turn from the worship of these foolish things and to pray instead to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them.
Acts 17:23
When I arrived here the other day, I was fascinated with all the shrines I came across. And then I found one inscribed, TO THE GOD NOBODY KNOWS. I’m here to introduce you to this God so you can worship intelligently, know who you’re dealing with.

#PrayerForTheWeek – Revenge

Lord, help us to guard our hearts and pray for our enemies that we too may not lose our integrity.

Romans 12:20-21

Rather, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head.” Do not be conquered by evil but conquer evil with good.

#PrayerForTheWeek – Grace

Thank You, Lord, for never giving up on me!

 

1 Timothy 1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display His immense patience as an example for those who would believe in Him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

​God does not exist for the sake of man.

Revelation 4:11

“You are worthy, our Lord and God! You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power.
You are worthy because You created all things. They were created and they exist. This is the way You planned it.”
We were made not primarily that we may love God (though we were made for that too) but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which the Divine love may rest ‘well pleased’. #CSLewis
