One That Worshipped God Luke 10:38-42 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.  And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.  But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.  And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Let’s go to a little village outside the city of Jerusalem, located approximately, 2 miles East of the temple. This little village called Bethany, is where Mary, Martha and Lazarus live. Jesus has been invited by Martha to come to her home, and while He is there, she becomes very involved preparing for Him. We all know how preoccupied we can become wh…

Who Shall Separate Us?

The Love of Christ Romans 8:31-39 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?   He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?  Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.   Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.   Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, sh…
Witnessing with Boldness Acts 14:8-15 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked:  The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,  Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.  And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.  And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.  Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.  Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,  And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from t…

No Other Gods Before Me

Worshipping Christ Revelation of John 4:10-11
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,  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. Have you ever asked yourself, “What does the word worship mean?” The word "worship" has undergone a change in meaning in English. It comes from the Old English word “weorthscipe,” which means the condition of being worthy of honor, respect, or dignity. The word “weorthscipe” later developed into the word, “worship,”  meaning to attribute worth to an object or person. Worship is the “worthship” of the one you worship. When you worship Jesus Christ you attribute worth to Him and to His glorious name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth (Philippi…
