Great Thought on Lordship, The Counter Cultural Nature of Following Jesus

“Tragically, the church has become so comfortable with the culture it can no longer see the bankruptcy of its egocentric, materialistic ways. Indeed, much Christian literature and preaching is but a religious adaptation of self-indulgent, secular standards. But the ‘what’s in it for me,’ ‘God will put a chicken in every pot’ message mocks the hard-edged truth of the gospel. It is nothing less than heresy.”

Worshiping Our Glorious God

We worship a great God! His glory trumps any worry or concern that we might face. He cannot be contained (physically nor in our little theological boxes). Amazingly, as we walk with and in Him this great creator of the end of the earth shows us who He is.

Even more amazing, the wonder of salvation! The Father sent His Son; Jesus died for the penalty of our sin, came back from the dead, and rose into Heaven to sit at the Father’s side; and together the Father and Jesus have poured the Holy Spirit into our lives when we “confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that He rose from the dead” (Romans 10.9).

We worship a great God! and what  a blessing it is to be able to worship Him together!

 

Psalm 36.5-10

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,

your faithfulness to the clouds.

 

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,

your judgments are like the great deep;

you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.

 

How precious is your steadfast love, O God!

All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

 

They feast on the abundance of your house,

and you give them drink from the river of your delights.

 

For with you is the fountain of life;

in your light we see light.

 

O continue your steadfast love to those who know you,

and your salvation to the upright of heart!
