Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on October 15, 2016 · Posted in Worship

People were designed by God to worship. At the fall man lost his ability to know whom to worship. So, we worship counterfeit gods. This is the worship we were born to as fallen creatures.

It is the enemy’s scheme that when we participate in corporate worship we do so to earn God’s favor. But our God is a jealous God. He will not share his glory with counterfeit pretenders.

May we see God for who he is, not for what we want him to be. May we say with the Psalmist:

But as for me, it is good to be near God.

I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;

I will tell of all your deeds.

Christ All Sufficient
