Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

Psalm 29:1-2
New International Version (NIV)

      People worship many things--material possessions, celebrities, and even each other.  We have a tendency to elevate others, our activities, and our possessions to a point of keen longing for them when they are apart from us.  Our adulation is often misplaced.  Things and people pass through our lives.  They are temporal while God is eternal.

      Our eternal God is worthy of our feelings of most profound love and devotion and it is to Him that we should direct our worship.  Love our families and friends in the sense that they should be loved.  Enjoy our possessions and experiences but always keep them in perspective of the short-lived things that they are.   But set your eternal sights on Almighty God.  Worship Him for He is Lord.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,  for our “God is a consuming fire.”
Hebrews 12:28-29
New International Version (NIV)


  1. "...let us be thankful, and so worship God..." - wonderful words! Thanks for the reminder - I'm drinking it in today!

  2. We need God and yet so many have turned away from Him.
