God chose fit to lay me flat on my back on Tuesday, along with my youngest son. And Paul needed to come home early after having one of his spells. Pray for my wife as she tends to three sick members!
So, I pulled out a little book by A.W. Tozer, Whatever Happened to Worship, and discovered this gem on page 67:
I was created to worship and praise God. I was redeemed that I should worship Him and enjoy Him forever.
That is the primary issue, my brother or sister. That is why we earnestly invite men and women to become converted, taking Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
God is not asking you to come to Christ just to attain peace of mind or to make you a better businessman or woman. You were created to worship. God wants you to know His redemption so you will desire to worship and praise Him.
Sick or well, ‘normal’ or living with disabilities, we were created to worship Him and enjoy Him forever.
Pastor John paused this past Sunday to go over that foundation of joy. I was encouraged by this ‘classic sermon‘ and especially recommend it to you if Christian hedonism is a new concept for you.
