A lifestyle of Worship
“My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, That they may dwell with me; He who walks in a perfect way, He shall serve me.“
David looked at the faithful, deciding that they would dwell with him. When he looked for leaders, he looked for the faithful of the land.
A wise leader will always look for the faithful ones before giving authority to them.
In a similar way, our saviour and Lord Jesus Christ’s eyes are upon His faithful ministers of the word, who preach the Gospel faithfully. He rewards them with a crown of life that never fades.
Christ’s eyes are also on faithful members of the church who hold fast the faithful word. He protects and preserves them from perishing that they may dwell with Him and be with Him in judgment.
God loves people with faithful hearts and delights to have them trust in him!!!

🙏A LIFESTYLE OF WORSHIP 🙏
👉If you woke up this morning with more health than illness…you are more blessed than the 6 million, who will not survive this week.
👉 If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation…you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
👉If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death…you are more blessed, than three billion people in the world.
👉If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead, and a place to sleep…you are richer than 75% of this world.
👉If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish in someplace…you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
What if we had to put a price tag on all our other blessings?
🙏What God has done for us leads to Thanksgiving
🙏What God has done in general leads to Praise
🙏Who God is leads to Worship
🙏We become like whom we worship.
🙏If we worship superficial things, our lives become superficial.
🙏If we worship perverted things our lives become perverted.
🙏If we worship evil things our lives become evil.
🙏If we worship the true God we become godly.
😩Complaining makes us miserable.
