Jesus died on the cross in order that our sins may be forgiven, that we could have a restored relationship with God by His sacrifice. Sometimes I think it helps for us to remember all He went through for us. He suffered and died for us. This is huge.
In my own experience, I cannot cease to thank Him for this each and every day, through how I live my life and through worshiping Him with my whole heart.
Let us remember all He has done to reconcile us to the Father, to redeem us and give us life. Let us sing and shout praises to Him and raise our hands to Him in awe. Let our gratitude shine forth from our faces for what God has done for us… because of the indescribably amazing sacrifice of the truest of love that He gave!
May we be speechless because of all He has done. May we reflect on what He has done for us. As you worship with your church or small group, ponder on the words you are singing or hearing, reflect on the Scriptures shared, let your soul be reminded you of how indescribably great our God truly is!
How can we live unmoved without emotion when He has done the unthinkable for us who deserved it not? How can immense thanksgiving not fill our hearts as we exclaim with the Psalmist, “Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not all His benefits!” (See Psalm 103 in the Bible.)
We are made to worship!
Will we choose to pour it out to the Creator of the Universe who created us, to the Redeemer who lives forever and made the way for us to have eternal life with Him when He could have simply just left us in the chaos and destruction of our sin?
It should be our desire to worship Him with our whole hearts, to worship and love Him with all the strength of our hearts, souls and minds, in both Spirit and in truth. Even if we feel unable, or don’t think we know how, our hearts should cry out to Him to teach us His ways and to give us hearts and lives that exclaim that He is altogether lovely and worthy of all of our worship and surrender!
As Psalm 150 exclaims, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!”
