Read: Ephesians 2:1-10
Key Verses: Eph 2:8-9
Thoughts: Now we throw this whole thing in reverse. We take a break from our pushing hard in worship to remember its all about His grace, and our faith in it. Your works, even in worship, don’t save you. So you can relax a bit. We worship hard not because we have to meet some requirement. We worship hard for the same reason football fans scream at their TVs. Our team is the winning team. Our God is an awesome God. And that grace is what stirs us to get a little bit crazy!
Have you been working hard to try to earn something from God through your worship? Is it time for you to relax a little, be still, and simply worship without forcing it?
Quote: “God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.” – A.W. Tozer
Prayer: God, please forgive me for trying to reach You in my own efforts. Help me to understand that You are already to here with me and excite me afresh about Your great grace. Please lead me into radical, intimate encounters with You this week!
