Why We Worship 7


I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"


One of the things about God that we may find hard to understand and perhaps never understand fully, but just have to accept that it is true,
 is that 

God 

always has existed 
and 
always will exist

So today I'm thinking about worshipping God because 



We were born and we will die and that is the cycle of life that we understand 
but we are not like God.


He has always existed in the same way: fully and completely as God.


So we must cry





Have you grasped the  "who was and is and is to come" ?

Do you worship Him even though you may not fully understand Him?

  6. i read somewhere once "we were made to worship. so 24/7 we are worshiping something. if you're not worshiping God, then you are worshiping an idol" - i have always remembered it because it's a good reminder!

  10. I have lived in Revelation so many times, and that is what keeps me focused in Him. The world issues can drive me/us nuts, but concentrating on the fact that we will be with Him forever and He's the only One we can rely on. That's my goal... Thanks for sharing so straightforwardly. A necessity in our world.

    1. This is so amazing, I was just thinking last week how each Sunday during our church worship there has been at least one song centred around the attribute I had been focusing on so I was thinking of doing a series later on Songs but I didn't know that you had something so I must investigate yours again on Sunday.

  15. visiting from weekend brew today - I love the visual you have used for the eteranlity of God. Waves always make me think of God's love and how it keeps on coming no matter how I feel, what is happening around me or what will happen...it just keeps coming.

    "Who was and is and is to come" beautiful life-giving words. you remind me of a post that has only been in my mind about these words.!
