You have lots of habits. Have you ever asked yourself why?
- Why do you eat? Brush your teeth? Shower? Use deodorant? Shave?
- Why do you talk to family and friends? Play games and laugh with them? Shop with them? Share meals with them?
- Why do you go to work? Pay bills? Save money? Invest money? Give away money?
The answer is simple: you prefer order over chaos. If you stopped any of those habits for very long, your life would become one huge mess. Chaos would reign.
Now since we all value order over chaos, we practice these habits regularly. They are necessary for the orderly functioning of our bodies, social lives, and finances. But did you know that certain habits are also necessary if you want to maintain a dynamic relationship with God?
I believe that the single most important spiritual habit you can ever develop and practice is daily worship. It is your lifeline to God. It is the way you abide in Christ. It is how you stay perpetually filled with the Spirit.
For daily worship to be meaningful, you will need to know who God is, what worship is, and why we worship God. You will want to understand how you can worship every day of your life – with others on Sunday, in private on Monday-Saturday, and in your daily life, 24/7.
That was my topic this past Sunday. If you missed my message, I urge you to watch or listen to it right here. If you accept the challenge I give at the end of the message, you will likely establish a lively habit of daily worship.
Let me know if you accept the challenge. I want to pray for you.
