Over the past 30 years, there has been much anguish and ink spilt over the subject of worship. For many, worship is nothing more than the songs that we sing each week as we gather in the House of God. But what if I told you that your whole life is to be one of worship? If you've paid attention during this series on "Holy Habits" then that doesn't surprise you, but I hope to see you (in person or online) Sunday at 10 am to find out more.
I remember as a new Christian, one of my first experiences was suggesting that a group of us didn’t need to rush back for Sunday evening worship. Someone told me, “The Bible says we shouldn’t forsake the assembling one with another, so we’d better get there.” Instantly, this passage became one of guilt. If I was out of town, I’d better find a church to go to so I didn’t violate this command. But is that what it really means?
Of all the Holy Habits we see in Scripture, there is one that is not only misunderstood, but it is perhaps the most neglected. Fasting, that is abstaining from God's good gifts, is often looked at as a punishment or a means to twist God's arm. But if that is a wrong view of fasting, what is the right view? That's the question we will tackle this week. Hope to see you (in person or online) Sunday at 10 am!
It's been said we have to pray just to make it today, but if we're honest, prayer is one of the hardest things we need to do as Christians. Why do we pray to a God who is sovereign and will accomplish what he wants to? That's the question we will tackle this week. Hope to see you (in person or online) Sunday at 10 am!
