Worship The One Who Created You

God has created you in his image and after his likeness. God knew you before you entered your mother’s womb. God created you with a purpose and for a purpose. God loves you with an everlasting love. God is looking for you to be a worshipper of Him. God desires you to be a true worshipper.

The Bible states in John 4 that there was a woman who had five failed relationships. She encountered five failed marriages, yet that did not stop Jesus from seeing her with the eyes of love. She did not allow her past failures hinder her from receiving love from Christ. Jesus taught her about worship and she received the Word on Worship. Worship has many definitions.

Worship – The Greek words for “worship” in this verse is Proskuneo. Pros means in the direction of or towards, and kuneo is a word for kiss. It is a word of warm affection. Worship is showing affection to God.                                                                     

There is an English word worship that originates from an Old English word “worthship,” which was a word that denoted the worthiness of the one receiving the special honor or devotion. Worship is giving God his due worth.

Worship is giving God his due worth. To esteem to the worth, awe, adoration

Psalms 29:2                                                                                                                                   Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

When you worship you give “worth” to something. It is to tell what it is worth. When you give to God something that is worth something to you- you are telling God you are worth more to me than the something you gave to God.

Worship is giving God all that you are and all that you have. Worship is receiving God’s love and responding to His love by serving Him with all of your passion through the gifts and talents that God has given you that will bring Him Honor.

Thanksgiving

History of Thanksgiving
Our founding father of America, George Washington, acknowledge God’s purpose of thanksgiving over this great nation. In October 1879 he made this humble declaration. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will to grateful for his benefits, and humbly implore His protection and favor- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee to requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a Day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of the Almighty God especially by affording them and opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Thanksgiving must have its root inside of you before it can bear fruit on the outside.

Three Reasons Why I Give God Thanks

I am thankful to God for sending His Only Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me. For God so the loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I am thankful that I can experience the good life that God has planned for me before I was even born.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

I am thankful that the quality of life I can live now is better than the kind of life the world has to offer me. Jesus said “I have come that they may have life, and that they have it more abundantly. John 10:10
