“The Worship of God”
Updated: Aug 11
Matthew 4:10 (KJV)
For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve”
Last year Terri and I visited the Missions located in San Antonio, Texas. These Missions are coming up on 300 years old. They were built by men who worshipped God and wanted to expand their religion into the frontiers of early Texas before it was Texas. While walking in the Missions, I wondered how my prayers differed from those of the first prayers in an early Texan church. I am sure we had some common ways that we worshiped our Lord. However, their life was so different than mine, but the God we worship is the same God and He hasn’t changed.
These early followers of Christ gave up the human comforts to live and work in the wilds of Texas. They dealt with Indian attacks, diseases, and struggles of the early frontier. It would be interesting to talk with some of early believers to see the joy, and challenges they experienced in having a relationship with Christ.
Do you ever just think about the joy we have when we worship our Lord and Savior? What a pleasure it is to be able to have a relationship with our Lord daily. It is an awesome privilege to be able to pray to God daily and to live a life worshipping Him.
Unfortunately, everyone doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. There will be a day when every knee will bow, and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
If you haven’t made that decision to follow Christ, let today be that day. If you want to know how to have a relationship with Christ, please let me know. I would love to share with you.
You guys have a wonderful day.
