    Christian Cuéllarhas quoted4 years ago
    Prayer lets you speak to God; meditation lets God speak to you.

    This is the secret to a lifestyle of worship—doing everything as if you were doing it for Jesus.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    How is it possible to do everything to the glory of God? By doing everything as if you were doing it for Jesus and by carrying on a continual conversation with him while you do it.

    very activity can be transformed into an act of worship when you do it for the praise, glory, and pleasure of God.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Praise should be the first activity when you open your eyes in the morning and the last activity when you close them at night.8

    Worship is not a part of your life; it is your life. Worship is not just for church services.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    It isn’t for our benefit! We worship for God’s benefit. When we worship, our goal is to bring pleasure to God, not ourselves.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Worship is not for your benefit.

    There is no such thing as “Christian” music; there are only Christian lyrics. It is the words that make a song sacred, not the tune.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    In this usage, if a song is fast or loud or uses brass instruments, it’s considered “praise.” But if it is slow and quiet and intimate, maybe accompanied by guitar, that’s worship. This is a common misuse of the term “worship.”
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Worship is far more than music.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Anything you do that brings pleasure to God is an act of worship.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Bringing pleasure to God is called “worship.”
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    We often forget that God has emotions, too. He feels things very deeply.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    One of the greatest gifts God has given you is the ability to enjoy pleasure. He wired you with five senses and emotions so you can experience it. He wants you to enjoy life, not just endure it. The reason you are able to enjoy pleasure is that God made you in his image.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    If you are that important to God, and he considers you valuable enough to keep with him for eternity, what greater significance could you have?
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    The moment you were born into the world, God was there as an unseen witness, smiling at your birth. He wanted you alive, and your arrival gave him great pleasure. God did not need to create you, but he chose to create you for his own enjoyment. You exist for his benefit, his glory, his purpose, and his delight.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    You were planned for God’s pleasure.
    MJhas quoted3 months ago
    Second, receive. Receive Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior. Receive his forgiveness for your sins. Receive his Spirit, who will give you the power to fulfill your life purpose.
