Matthew 4:10 niv

mountains-468137_640

The third and final temptation was on a mountaintop where Satan
showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and told Jesus he would
give them to Him if Jesus would bow down and worship him.
Jesus told Satan that we are to worship God and serve only Him.
Not only did Jesus tell Satan what had been written, 
 He also told the devil to GO AWAY!

When temptations come to you do you recognize tempter?
How long do you listen before you tell him to go away?

Romans 12:1nlt

person-110303_640

We often talk about giving our minds and hearts to God, 
but rarely about giving our bodies to Him.
 He wants every part of our being, He wants all of us.
He does not want dead bodies He wants living bodies.
Bodies that are set apart for Him. 
Honest, honorable, hard-working bodies.
Bodies cared for, respected, loved, works in progress.

What is your body like?
Have you asked God for a progress report recently?

Romans 1:25 nlt

floral-346834_640We can ask, “How could they do such a thing?”
But in truth we should pray, “Oh, Lord, keep me from such a thing!”  
It is easy to exalt and praise things instead of the One who created them.  
We must be alert to worldly deceptions and search our hearts,  
keeping them devoted and dedicated to the one true God.

Have you searched your heart for hidden idols?
What do you do to keep your heart pure for the Lord?

Blessings this day of grace,

John 4:24 msg

worship

God is everywhere.
He is not limited to certain places or buildings.
It doesn’t matter where we worship Him
or what ceremonies or rites take place.
Though worship with other believers is important
it is most important that wherever and whenever we worship
we do so in spirit and truth from our hearts.

Do you worship only in a building called church?
Where is your favorite or most meaningful worship place?

Blessings this day of grace,
