Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
Meditation in WORSHIP
God is able to speak to us through those words that we read and reread, as we think about what we have read and ponder those words infiltrate our minds and change us. They give us a better understanding of what God is saying in His word. Through that better understanding we begin to think differently, and our attitudes and lives change. Even our actions toward ourselves, others and the world change to be more Christlike.
And isn't that what Christians desire? To be Christ like. To be Christ followers. To know God.
With these precepts or tenets in place, let us begin with WORSHIP.
12. I don't mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.
13. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lis ahead,
14. I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
15. Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you.
16. But we must hold on to the progress we have already made.
17. Dear brothers and sisters, pattern your lives after mine, and learn from those who follow our example.
18. For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ.
19. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth.
20. But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
21. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.
