I’m at ITAS now! Quantitative Analysis lecture is cancelled, so coming here while waiting for time to pass~
And pep was great. The Word today was about living life for a purpose.
1 Chronicles 29:12-19
Riches and glory come from you,
you’re ruler over all;
You hold strength and power in the palm of your hand to build up and strengthen all.
And here we are, O God, our God, giving thanks to you, praising your splendid Name.
That’s not the entire 12-19, it’s very wordy actually.
So, today was about worship. What does worship mean to everyone of us? Worship is coming to God with a sacrifice. So when we worship God, what do we give? We always sing in worship, about giving God, lifting Him up. But what do we give?
Many things exist in our life, that will separate us from God. So much so that we value these things more than the importance we place on God. Yet are we ever able to put those things down? To be able to put down, we need faith and obedience. A perfect example is in Genesis. The first time the Bible mentions ‘worship’ is in Genesis 22. Abraham and Isaac. Faith to trust God. Obedience to keep yourself in line.
And we need a focused and uncluttered heart. And what does it mean to have an uncluttered and focused heart? To me, it means that we have our priorities in the correct place. what is important to us, what is not as important. And to do that, we need to know what is our primary goal in life. What is your goal in life then? What do you want to achieve in life?
Society is very real. What are the things that you place importance on? It might not be the same things that society place importance on. And yet, if God is first in your life, why would we even hesitate to do things?
This point is very critical. If God is really first in your life, do not hesitate. Rise up to answer your calling. Do things for God, be proud of what you can achieve.
Because when God calls you, will you answer the call? Or will you be grasped by hesitance?
