The 7-Ups of Encouraging Yourself In The LORD – Lift Up!
I heard a preacher the other evening telling of someone that wanted to take their own life. They told him that they did not know why they were here on earth. Well, I can tell you why you are here.
Look at Revelation 4:11, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Right there is your answer. We were and are created to bring God pleasure.
Part of that is to worship Him. I like to describe the word worship by pronouncing it “worth-ship”. When we worship God we ascribe worth to Him. We show Him that we love Him and that He means something to us. We put a “worth” on Him. There are many ways to worship God. Not all of them involve going to Church either. You need to be a faithful member of a Bible-believing Church; but, worship occurs other places too.
We need to honor God by obeying Him. Living the Christian life is not easy; but, it is not impossible either. When we are indwelled and empowered by the Holy Ghost of the Living God then this becomes easier to us. It becomes more of who we are than what we do.
No matter what we are doing we need to lift up Jesus. If we lift Him up others will be drawn to Him.
