SUNDAY SERMON ON THE BLOG – A LIFE OF WORSHIP.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. - Colossians 3:17. (ESV)
Everything! All! No matter what we say, no matter what we do, it is to be offered as a gift of thanks to God with Jesus' name, power, and honour attached!
Begin with Him, and end with Him, and call upon His name, and pray for His direction and support, in all that we do. And every work we set out to do for Him will be crowned with all necessary success. This is what makes all of our lives, our worship, and thanksgiving to God, meaningful. There's no such thing as going to worship; if we live, if we talk, if we act, its worship.
So, how has your worship been lately?
Loving Father, I want all of my life to be lived out to your glory, a living testament of thanks to you, for the grace you have given me in Jesus. While I do not always do this as well as I would like, I lovingly offer you my words, my actions, my heart and my mind to bring you glory by doing your will. Help me by the power of your Holy Spirit, to remove the areas of self-deception from my life, so that weakness and hypocrisy, will not rob my discipleship of its intended worship of your majesty. In Jesus wonderful name I pray. Amen.
