THOUGHT: Come to church this Sunday already worshipping (not just TO worship.)
BIBLE: The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. Bless the Lord, all his angels of great strength, who do his word, obedient to his command. Bless the Lord, all his armies, his servants who do his will. Bless the Lord, all his works in all the places where he rules. My soul, bless the Lord! Psalm103:19-22
TRANSCRIPT :Welcome back to the Morning Thrive! We’ve been talking all all week about worship. I hope this has been an encouraging week for you thinking about the importance of worship and what worship is and what were doing when we’re worshiping God. You may tend to think of worship as just something you do on the weekends. “Worship, oh yeah, that’s what I do when I go to church, or maybe when I go to a Christian concert, or maybe have these little moments of worship in my car.” It’s a little mobile worship center when you crank up the worship tunes and you worship when you’re driving.
But did you know worship is something we can do all the time. In heaven worship is a 24/7 thing. Listen to these words from David, the Psalm writer, and he’s talking to us. He starts off talking to himself, “My soul worship the Lord.” Then he talks to all of us. Hey, we all should worship the Lord. Then he starts talking to heaven. I love this, “Bless the Lord, all his angels of great strength, who do His word, obedient to His command. Bless the Lord, all His armies, His servants who do His will. Bless the Lord, all His works in all the places where He rules.”
I love that! It’s like, “Hey angels, worship Him. Hey servants and armies up there, worship Him. Hey everybody, wherever you are, in any place, it’s time to worship God.”
Worship is a 24/7 thing. And you can worship God. Not just in church. Not just in a concert. You can worship Him 24/7 in your heart as you surrender your life to Him, and as you yield yourself to him and as you come to Him with gratitude and thanksgiving. That’s worship.
By the way, why not come this weekend? If you want to gather together and worship God let’s do it together. Come to First Colleyville if you’re close by. We’s love to see you there. It’s at 9am, 10:15am, and 11:30am. Or go to a Bible teaching church close to you and worship God this week.
