THINK ON THESE THINGS - SUNDAY MESSAGE

PART 4 - GLORY TO HIS NAME!


The chief end of man is to Glorify our Great God and enjoy Him forever! This is why He created those whom He has called by His Own Name. He knew us before the Foundation of the Earth and before time, as we know it, began. 


1 Corinthians 10:31 tells us to glorify Him (His Name) in all we do. 
This is why we say thanks before we eat and why we should thank Him when we get to our destinations safely, without accident or incident. 
This is why we acknowledge His Hands in the jobs we have and the paychecks we earn. 
This is why we should never disparage the homes we live in or the spouses He gave us. 
This is why we should never let our kids leave our homes without bringing them up in the Ways of the Lord. This is why we should be mindful of Him AT ALL TIMES, loving, praising and worshipping - never wanting to disappoint Him by the sinful things mankind is capable of!


The Name of the Lord is greatly to be praised!
The Name of the Lord is a strong tower - many run to it to be saved!
The Name of the Lord is Life
The Name of the Lord is a living water in the dry and thirsty land.


 
Jesus told the woman at the well in John 4:23 that the time is coming (and is now here) when Father God, Abba our Daddy, is looking for true worshippers - who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth

In Spirit - meaning under the Power of the indwelling Spirit of God. He is only given to the redeemed. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!


In Truth- meaning under the Power of the infallible Word of God - the Bible. Though many disparage it - let it never be said of YOU that you blasphemed. Worship Him...WORSHIP HIM!! WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN!!



GLORIFY HIS NAME THUS, BY:


1. Acknowledging WHO He is! PRAY PSALM 95 VERSES 1-7
2. Appreciate WHO He is! While praying those verses, be in awe at His Power!
3. Adore His Majesty, Love and compassion! If He gave us justice, we would never survive but because He loved us so much, He sent Jesus, we must adore Him!
4. Affection - love Him! Just love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your might! Jesus' yoke was really easy. Unlike other religions - which are ALL FALSE  and EVIL and burdensome, Jesus gave us only two commandments! This one and love your neighbor as yourself! PRAY PSALM 29


If you do these four things daily...in any order....but JUST DO THEM, wherever you are...no matter what you're doing, in the silence of your heart and the company of others - He will be faithful and true to you! The more you love Him, glorify Him and surrender to the promptings and guiding of Holy Spirit - your best friend until we see Jesus face to Face....the more He will reveal and reveal and never conceal the Secret and great things of God to you!

I love the Lord....I can go on forever and write about His Glory and will one day...but for now, this brief exhortation is a full exercise in itself. Never leave it. Search me oh Lord and know my heart ....and lead me to Your Righteousness. Remove the dross from my life, oh Father...cleanse me this day, draw me close to you, never let me go - You are all I need. You are all I ever wanted..but didn't know it! 


Just thank you Lord! Thank you for saving me, loving me, pulling me out of the pit, freeing me from Egypt and for showing me I can keep Egypt out of me, if I become a true worshipper...AND can say: GLORY TO HIS NAME!!!

In the Name of Jesus, amen!
