Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on · Posted in Culture

Coming before the Living God in corporate worship is a blessing secured for you by Christ’s death. If your desire is to see your children truly worship God, then show them that corporate worship is a profound privilege. Don’t conform to the world and critique the worship of God because things in the service may not have gone as well as you think they should have. Because we are sinners there will always be times when we fall short.  A sermon that you think could have been better is no reason not to be in awe of God. Even when men fail, God remains holy. Renew your mind in worship as your encounter the power of the trinity. Pray that you will be blown away that you that stand before God in the righteous robes of Christ.  Don’t hide this wonder from your children. Have the courage to be transformed!

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
