God’s beauty is all around us, but often we fail to see it. How can you embrace his beauty, majesty and power and worship him today? In service to the people in your life and your church community, in the sharing of wisdom, in appreciation for his many gifts, or even in a Sabbath day of rest. What are the ways that you can worship God on a daily, hourly basis?
Discipline of Worship: The Key of Balance
We are called to worship in spirit and truth. To worship in spirit means to worship from within, no matter where we are. To worship in truth means to worship Him as he is revealed in Scripture, to worship Him for who the Bible says He is, not our personal views of God. Also, when we worship in spirit and truth, we grow in our faith, which should be our goal.
Moving to Maturity (Take Five)
This week, we’re highlighting posts about movement - to maturity, to hope, to new places and to worship. We’re highlighting teaching sons about manhood, reading Scripture, waiting on God and moving where He calls us. How are you moving this week, or where do you need to move? Our prayer is that this Take Five gives you hope and fuel for your journey.

Godly Jealousy?! Pt. 2 of 4

We learned that God as the Commander or LORD is unlike any other, is alive and loving, loyal and faithful. No other gods are like YHWH or have done as YWYH. Who God is earns him the right to exclusive worship. That truth should be enough. But, we can also look at what God does for further evidence of his worthiness to all praise.
Discipline of Worship: The Key of Focus
Worship is a discipline because we're easily tempted to neglect it. We are focusing on the first key in the discipline of worship, which is the key of F, for Focus on God. Singing and other acts of worship are not true worship if the focus is on the sound and not God.
