This Wednesday at Woman to Woman we are in week six of our ten week study, "The Air I Breath Worship as a Way of Life", by Louie Giglio.
For Who He Is, For What He Does
There are two main reasons why we worship God......for who He is and for what He has done. Who is God? It's a concept that we can not even fathom. God is awesome, He has no barriers or limitations, who He is does not depend on us at all. God created the universe just to show us who He was. It's something that is at times hard to grasp...the God who created the stars and hung them in space, who created the mountains in all their majesty, and who created you and me, is the God that loved us enough to send His Son to die for us..... is who we worship.
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
God, doesn't change to suite our needs, or to go along with the crowd. He simply is.
"God is pure. Radiant. Without blemish or stain. He is untainted goodness. Without fault or blame. Perfection personified. ~ Giglio
Not only is God awesome in all of His glory and power, He is also someone who desires us to draw near to Him. He wants our worship! He desires the praises and honor that's due to Him.
"We praise God for who He is. We honor Him for what He has done."
God grants us with numerous miracles throughout our days. The air we breath, the birds that sing, the flowers in bloom and the sun the warms our days to name a few. Most importantly, He has given us the gift of eternal life through His son. Even, during times when He may feel far away......He's not.....He never leaves our side.
"Even if our circumstances don't appear to affirm it, God is still everything He says He is. So, no matter what life sends our way we focus our attention on Him. He's still God in the midst of joy and tragedy." ~ Giglio
When have you been most captivated by who the Father is? How can you capture that in your every day life? What will it take to draw you closer to Him? Are you willing to offer Him your worship today?
