Worshiping God in a way that is 100% You.
“The most common mistake Christians make in worship today is seeking an experience rather than seeking God. He wants you to sense His presence, but He’s more concerned that you trust Him than that you feel Him. Faith, not feelings, pleases God.” — Rick Warren
“I put my pride down and picked that Bible up.” — Ace Hood
Tony Campolo shared recently that one of the problems churches are having is that they are not connecting to people. What he stated that we need to do is cater to both young and old people so that there can be a unified body of Christ as God has always intended.
We all worship God differently and that’s okay.
That’s the point.
God created us all to be unique.
I recently heard Tim Royer speak on just how complex our brains are.
He shared that each human brain has about 100 billion neurons.
Tim repeatedly shared that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Fearfully and wonderfully made. Fearfully and wonderfully made.
It is absolutely incredibly who we were all created to be.
God knew us before we were born — He designed us.
I don’t believe that this means we should accept or agree with what everyone else does.
But at the minimum, we should respect them.
No matter who the person is, we cannot see their heart but God can and God does.
If someone is acting with the right motives, shouldn’t they receive our utmost respect?
And if someone is acting without the right motives… shouldn’t we also respect them?
We don’t know exactly what people are doing and why.
Kanye West has received a lot of media attention recently because he released a gospel album. I love that.
He’s receiving a fair amount of criticism. I don’t like that.
We don’t know his heart.
The question I would like to ask is, “Is he honoring God with that album?” I say yes.
The question I would like to also ask is, “Is your judgment honoring God?”
