“For you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God), (Exodus 34:14 NKJV)
Worship is adoration.
Worship is respect.
Worship is extravagant love.
Worship is saying God you are number one.
Worship is singing, shouting, thanksgiving.
Worship is desiring to be in the presence of God.
Worship is complete submission.
Worship is bowing the knee.
Worship is kneeling to the King of Kings alone.
Worship is a mind occupied with God, first and foremost.
Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the LORD [is] the great God, And the great King above all gods.
In His hand [are] the deep places of the earth; The heights of the hills [are] His also.
The sea [is] His, for He made it; And His hands formed the dry [land].
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
For He [is] our God, And we [are] the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. (Psalm 95:1-7 NKJV)
We shall worship no other god!
- Spouse nor our house
- Boys nor our toys
- Wealth nor our health
- Jobs nor our sobs
- Pain nor our pleasure
- Food nor our mood
- Ball nor our mall
- Me nor you
God is God. He is good. He is full of grace. “For the LORD your God [is] a consuming fire, a jealous God. (Deuteronomy 4:24 NKJV)
The LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
- He is jealous.
- He is zealous.
- He chose us.
- He took our shame.
- He took our sin.
- He bought us with his own blood.
- He died so that we should not perish.
- He took stripes for our healing.
- He gave his life so we could live forever with Him.
- He gave his only son for us.
- He loves us.
- He is jealous for us.
“He loves you so much that he cannot endure that anything should stand between your heart’s love and him. Be careful Christians, you that are married to Christ; remember, you are married to a jealous husband.”-Charles Spurgeon, March 29, 1863
I enCOURAGE you to “give to the LORD the glory due His name; Bring an offering and come before Him. Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! (1 Chronicles 16:29 NKJV) Take great comfort in knowing that God is jealous for you. He wants all of you. Surrender to his great love.
