Take aim–a call to worship!
Scripture reading for August 14th: Psalm 94-97, 2nd Corinthians 13
Key Scriptures: 2nd Corinthians 13:11-14 “Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
As Paul closed his final letter to the Corinthians, after urging them to rejoice, he called them to take aim or to focus their life. The goal was restoration of the fallen brother and a flow of God’s comfort, peace and love in the body of believers. Father God, Lord Jesus, and Holy Spirit would be with them to help them hit the target! This calls for worship!
Psalm 96:6-7 “Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the people, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength! Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering and come into His courts.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your promised presence with Your people. As we focus on You and Your will and Word, we are drawn to worship You, the Strong and Beautiful One. Amen.
