WHY DO YOU WORSHIP THE WAY YOU DO?

John 4:23 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit. . .”

Is your worship cold and without emotion?

Is your worship just a ceremony?

This Bible text helps us understand that it must be much more than that. It can be full of emotion as we think about the Cross and the life of Jesus.

Our worship can be full of gratitude and the Holy Spirit will give us guidance.

Without an emotive component, our worship is empty like a tomb.

Awake with me today, come let us worship in truth and in spirit!!

I praise God for so much, more than I can say.

What say you about God today?

MySpiritualExerciseSmallYou and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.

Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.

So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?

Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.

WERE YOU KIND TO EVERYONE YESTERDAY?

1 Cor 10:32 “Give none offence”

It is too easy today to become argumentative.

We want to argue. Sometimes we even trick people into an argument just so we can win.

Maybe we want to do something to offend a muslim who is irritating us.

Maybe we want to offend our brother or sister and get even for another wrong.

As Christians we should not seek to get even. We should forgive and turn the other cheek.

I know this is illogical and difficult to do sometimes, but Jesus did it.

Spiritual Exercise softens our hearts and encourages us to give no offence.

It’s a wonderful thing and I want you to share in it today.

I praise God for this privilege of being one with Jesus.

DO YOU LIKE BEING BORN AGAIN?

Mt 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”

This isn’t a magical device or ceremony. No, this is to demonstrate a new beginning of a new life that is to be one with God.

Jesus wants us to be one with Him and the Father. He wants us to come away from our sinful DNA and join Him in order to change our desires through Spiritual Exercise.

Our best friend is Jesus, and that should make us want to spend more time with Him.

To be born again is a wonderful way to live and I praise God for this.

HOW HOLY DO YOU WANT TO BE?

Deut 28:9 “The Lord shall establish thee an holy people”

This concept is not beyond our reach.

This is not blasphemous to consider.

You and I can become holy through Spiritual Exercise.

Our thoughts can conform to the model of Jesus and our actions will follow.

Yes, we will fail many times along the way, but God forgives our mistakes, while we are on the path to righteousness.

We may never get there in this life, but the journey is a delight!

Each day our life becomes more and more precious and peaceful inside as we walk with Jesus.

I praise God. I praise Jesus. I praise the Holy Spirit for helping and saving you and me.

GOOD NEWS TODAY

Ps 62:7 “In God is my salvation.”

What’s going on is bigger than me. There is this great controversy between Satan and God.

Satan figured he could be a God too, and in a few short years his self-centered decisions led him to hate God and desire to kill Jesus.

I joined Satan’s rebellion for a time, and I still find myself on his side from time to time, but God let’s me repent and return to where I want to be with Him.

My vaccilation is always forgiven, and it’s only because of Jesus.

Spiritual Exercise helps me to make better choices when tempted, and for that I’m thankful. It helps me to grow closer and closer to Jesus and that makes all the difference.

I praise God. I praise Jesus. I praise the Holy Spirit for helping and saving you and me.

OMG, OMG, OMG – WHAT DOES GOD THINK OF THIS?

Deut 32:3 “ascribe ye greatness unto our God”

What is your opinion of OMG?

Do you think that this ascribes greatness to His name?

Does this slang expression bother you?

When people say this, how does it make you feel?

I believe that as we do our daily Spiritual Exercise the Holy Spirit will lessen our desire to use this phrase that is disrespectful to our Savior.

I don’t criticize others, because we are all on our own spiritual journey.

My calling is to encourage everyone to come closer to Jesus and then God will guide each person, individually and then this phrase will be used less and less.

I can only encourage and affirm the glory of God and the good news of salvation.

We can all praise Jesus today for His love.

OUR ATTITUDES SHOULD BE YOUNG AND OUR UNDERSTANDING OLD

1 Cor 14:20 “Brethren, be not children in understanding”

Yes, we should never graduate from the school of the Bible and of God.

No matter how old we are we learn as we open the Word of God.

The Holy Spirit opens our eyes and we glimpse the glory of God and truth as we have never before seen it.

This is a wonderful, exciting experience that you and I can have each and every day.

The Bible will bring us closer and closer to God and it will change our desires to be more holy.

Who wouldn’t want that?

I praise God for this assistance.

WHAT’S YOUR LIFE LIKE?

1 John 5:12 “He that hath the Son, hath life;”

This verse can be interpreted in two ways.

It can be speaking of eternal life that is assured through our relationship with Jesus and it can be speaking of the fabric of life today.

I prefer the latter interpretation because so many Christians fail to grasp and enjoy this life that partakes of God’s divine nature through Spiritual Exercise.

Ephesians 2:6 tells us that we are already in heaven, spiritually speaking, and I get that.

As we come closer and closer to Jesus through Spiritual Exercise, our desires change and we care less for things on this planet and more for things that matter.

We begin to love other people more and we begin to have an inner peace that can be achieved no other way.

I tell you, this matters and this works.

I praise God for caring for you and me; for loving you and me.
