Living Life with Purpose...
The Holy Spirit can satisfy our hearts forever, if we let Him.
The problem is that sometimes we look to physical, created things for our fulfillment. But, just as Jesus told the woman at the well, only the living water of the Spirit can quench our thirst eternally. In the words of the classic hymn, "The things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace."
One hour of worship on the weekends is a rewarding experience, but it's not enough. However, the truth is that worship is a lifestyle to be lived every day and not just on the weekends.
In fact, Paul taught us that we should offer our very lives (ALL of our lives!) as gifts of worship to God. This is the kind of worship that Abraham demonstrated when he obeyed God's command to sacrifice Isaac, his only son. Abraham had faith that God would somehow give his son back to him, and that act of faith and obedience was considered by God to be true worship.
God loves to see us worship Him, and our corporate worship on the weekend is honorable to Him only when our personal lifestyle honors Him all week long. In other words, we can't hide a sinful spirit at work behind voices that are raised in worship at church.
Let's be the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. Let's fix our eyes on Jesus and allow our spirits to be governed by God's. Let's worship Him Sunday through Saturday.
