A CALL TO REST IN HIM (Part 5)

Awareness Of His Presence

“… And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28: 20). 

It is important that we stay conscious of God as we go step by step through each day.  His Presence with us is both a promise and a protection.

Just before Jesus ascended into heaven He said that He will be with us always and that  is a promise to all His followers, without exception.

The promise of His Presence is also powerful protection, for as we journey through life, there are numerous pitfalls along the way.  Many voices and things clamor for our attention, enticing us as we go on our way.  A few steps away from your true path are pits of self-pity and despair, plateaus of pride and self-will.  If you take your eyes off Jesus and follow another’s way, you are in grave danger.  Even well-meaning friends can lead you astray if you let them usurp God’s place in your life.

The way to stay on course in your life is to keep your focus on Jesus; continually looking to Him alone for help, comfort, and companionship.  Awareness of our need for Him, in small matters as well as in large ones, keeps us spiritually alive.  Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always (Psalm 105: 4)

    Warped Worship

    “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator – who is forever praised. Amen.” (ROMANS 1:25)
    Scripture Focus: Romans 1:18-32

    Bob Dylan got it right when in 1979 he wrote, “You’re gonna have to serve somebody.” The question is not whether you worship, but what you worship. Often we live under the illusion that if we’re not worshiping God, then we must not be worshiping anything at all; but the truth is that we all worship something. We all have ultimate allegiances. We all live for something and are devoted to something. Indeed, you’re “gonna have to serve somebody.”

    It’s often tempting to see the struggles in our lives as simply a matter of what we do or don’t do. But Scripture diagnoses our problem as something much more fundamental – as a matter of what we worship. Therefore, if we have any hope of beginning to live for God, then what we worship must be changed. We must begin from the inside out. And that is exactly what the Lord promises to do in the Gospel: “I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols” (Ezekiel 36:25). Let’s put Jesus Christ at the center of our worship.
    Insight: Scripture Claims That Everyone Worships Something Or Someone. What Do You Worship? Ask The Lord To Increase Your Desire To Worship Him Alone.
