It may be easy to get distracted by the business and traditions of the Christmas season, even to the point that we forget or dismiss the true reason why we celebrate. With all the hindrances and setbacks of 2020, many people have started decorating early and doing whatever they can to bring a little joy into their lives. But what if our response to a difficult year wasn’t merely attempting to cover up the pain, but to view God in light of who He is in all His goodness and then respond accordingly?
The Bible says in Psalm 96:9, “Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.” When we worship God with every aspect of our lives by treasuring and valuing Him above all else, we declare His worth. Adoring God brings Him joy, and in turn, allows His favor and presence to penetrate our lives.
In this 4-part series, Pastor Miles and others teach us how to properly posture our hearts to fully receive, commit, and pursue God—particularly in closing out 2020 and looking into the new year. Learn to worship the Father in obedience, gratefulness, and honor, and witness the beautiful, life-changing results of a fully surrendered heart.
