“For thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11 KJV).
Nothing you do matters more than bringing pleasure to God. There’s a much misunderstood word we use that describes bringing pleasure to God: worship.
Worship is so much bigger than the songs we sing. Church services can be worship experiences but we’re called to worship throughout our entire week not just on the weekend.
God says worship isn’t what you do with your lips; it’s what you do with your life. You can sing the most beautiful songs with Christ-centred lyrics and still not worship God.
Romans 12:1 MSG says, “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering”.
That verse is a good example of a life that makes God smile.
Is your life bringing pleasure to God?
Father, please let my life daily bring pleasure to you IJN
