Acceptable Sacrifices

Happy Tuesday, folks!

Worship began this week with “God of the Promise“, followed by “Greater Than Your Love“.  After a testimony and baptism, we began singing Hillsong Worship’s “What A Beautiful Name“, and Elevation Worship’s “Mighty Cross“.  After a little video update of how Elevation Worship’s been on tour, we heard a message from Wade Joye, the worship pastor.

My notes read:

Acceptable Sacrifices

you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

  • Priority: The Levities’ sacrifices honored God because they made it a priority.
  • When you show up to worship even if you don’t feel it, that’s not being fake–it’s being faithful.
  • Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you–that promise is for the mountain tops as well as the valleys.
  • Don’t judge the story of your life by this chapter.
  • You have to go through the chapters of pain to get to the chapters of joy and breakthrough.
  • Do not forfeit the strength that God wants to give you because of misaligned priorities.
  • Perspective: How many times do we look at something from so close up and have no idea what we are looking at?
  • 1 Chronicles 23:28-29
  • Some of the things that look the least worshipful to me look the most worshipful to God.
  • 1 Corinthians 10:31
  • When you begin to look at what you’re doing as worship, you go into it more expectant.  You just have to show up and say yes.
  • Posture

We ended with singing “Hallelujah Here Below“.
