who am I really worshiping - myself or my wonderful God?
"I made all this! I own all this!” God’s Decree.
“But there is something I’m looking for:
a person simple and plain,
reverently responsive to what I say.
“Your acts of worship
are acts of sin:
Your sacrificial slaughter of the ox
is no different from murdering the neighbor;
Your offerings for worship,
no different from dumping pig’s blood on the altar;
Your presentation of memorial gifts,
no different from honoring a no-god idol.
You choose self-serving worship,
you delight in self-centered worship—disgusting!" Isaiah 66:2-3 MSG
Yikes. Is my worship God-centered or self-centered? Do I worship regardless of my preferences not being met? Worship is so much more than my passionate musical offerings to God on Sunday morning. I worship God when I respond to His Word in an obedient and reverent way. I worship with my life.
Lord, be my life, my strength, my song, my cornerstone, my solid ground . . . firm through the fiercest droughts and storms.
