No Other Option

Over the last few weeks I've been reminded that God is not an optional or leisure time activity.  Knowing God is an absolute necessity.  We can trifle with many things in life, but our relationship with God is not one of these things.
 
Psalm 14:1 says "Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God."" but the truth is that we can believe in God and still live like a 'fool.'  We can believe in God, but not live as if God is real or even particularly matters.  And then where does this leave us when difficult times strike?  As Jesus said the fool builds his house upon the sand, but the wise man builds his life upon my words.
 
What we believe about God will be revealed by how we worship.  A colleague of mine recently said that he thought us Baptists were too casual.  We gather as if we are coming to a cafe or a sports game.  Instead let us open our eyes and see things as God sees them
 
This is worship - "But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel" (Heb 12:22-24). Amen.
 
Blessing, Pastor Andrew
