Honoring Christ In Our Bodies-Day 3

Relating to One Another Relating to one another in fellowship and accountability helps us stay on track and sharpens us for his purposes … Paul apparently held a special affinity in his heart for the believers in Thessalonica, claiming that, “just as a nursing mother cares for her children,” he in the same way cared for them (1TH 2:7). He made continual mention of them in his prayers (ITH 1:2), his labor unto them was counted a joy...

Rejoice | The Worship Shift We Rejoice and thank God for the trials, knowing that when we are weak, we are dependent on him and he is strong … Addiction is a worship problem. Our hearts are constantly worshipping. We are relentlessly looking for things unto which we can ascribe worth, value, allegiance, and honor. Therefore, to enjoy the Lord’s victory over our sin, we must take our minds and eyes off of our lesser loves, and our...

Honoring Christ In Our Liturgy-Day 7

Today we read Christ’s Great Commission. Consider it in a new light. Consider the Great Commission in light of God’s rhythms of worship. Christ calls his disciples into mission the same way in which he created the world; in the same way he called Moses, and in the same pattern of Solomon’s Temple. Notice God’s pattern for worship again, and praise our God for his unchanging nature in worship and mission. Jesus appoints and appears to...

Honoring Christ In Our Liturgy-Day 5

God’s Order of Worship is present in how he deals with our sin corporately (together), but also in how we relate to God in worship individually. Meditate on Isaiah’s encounter with God today, and consider how God’s rhythm again can challenge us in how we relate to him when we’re worshipping with Christ’s church together, as well as when we are walking with the Lord in our daily rhythms. God’s character recognized (vv.1-4) Human...

Honoring Christ In Our Liturgy-Day 4

God’s Rhythm in the Law God’s people had been under the ruling and tyrannical Egyptian regime for over 400 years. Imagine the psychological and spiritual complexes that had taken root in the Israelite people after 400 years of oppression and slavery. During their times as slaves, Israel had fallen into idol worship, and they’d embraced in large part the Egyptian gods and their false sense of rule. After God delivers Israel from the...

God’s Rhythm in Calling Moses was a covert Israelite masquerading as an oppressive Egyptian ruler until one day, in an act of angry justice, he murdered an Egyptian slave-master who raised his hand to harm a fellow Israelite. Moses was driven into exile for his act. He was driven away from Egypt, and was unable to be of any help to Egypt or the oppressed Israel. Moses fled into the land of Midian. He married, and accepted a simple...

God’s Rhythm in Restoration In Day 1 of this study we looked at how God has a pattern, or a rhythm that all of creation follows in how we relate to and worship him. It is important to note that God’s rhythm not only presses its way into creative activity, but also into acts of re-creation or restoration. Sadly, when humanity chose to sin against God by disobeying him, we experienced a distance from God and a change in our nature. We...
