Happy May, friends!
Wow, can you believe how quickly April went? Maybe it’s just me and my crazy schedule, but I feel like that month just disappeared.
Throughout all of April we talked about courage and being courageous and living courageously, and one thing became clear to me as I studied courage: It doesn’t always look like what I expect.
That, and it’s always inconvenient.
Courage calls us to live a different kind of life, a life that stands out from the crowd. And one way we can do that is to live a life of worship.
Worship is one of the most misunderstood and misapplied concepts in all of Christianity (in my humble opinion), and it’s become something of a sticking point in many churches. Sometimes for reasons you wouldn’t expect.
So for the month of May we’re going to talk about worship. What it is, what it does, and what it’s for. Why it should matter to us and why it does matter to God.
We’re going to get biblical up in here, you guys. Not that we aren’t always biblical, but you get what I’m saying.
Worship is so much more than just singing songs in church. If we can truly learn to live a lifestyle of worship, it will change everything. It changes the way we see ourselves and how we know God. It changes our hearts from the inside out, and—what’s more—it draws others to Jesus.
I don’t know about you but I’d much rather bring people to Christ because of how I’m living my life rather than by beating them over the head with a Bible.
For the first week, we’re going to start with the basics:
May 2 - What is worship?
May 3 - Why does it matter?
May 4 - How do we do it?
May 5 - Where do we do it?
May 6 - Why does it work?
Sometimes getting back to the basics is the best thing we can do for ourselves, especially when our lives are so complicated.
Also we’re taking John 4:24 as our memory verse for this week:
I pray that the Lord will reveal truth and wisdom to you in this month’s study about worship and that you’ll experience the freedom to sit in His love.
The Lord takes great care of us, doesn’t He?
