Made to Worship

The Greatest Commandment
You and your children  were made for a relationship with God. We were made to know, love, serve, and obey Him. We were not created to be self-absorbed, self-centered, self-sufficient, or to live autonomously away from our Creator, God. According to Jesus, the greatest commandment is to love and obey God.
“You shall love the Lord you God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.”  Matthew 22:37-38 (ESV)
Who or What is being Worshiped?
The Bible goes on to say that we will either live in joyful submission to God or we will live in submission to someone or something else. Everyone is a worshiper.

Our thoughts, choices, relationships, and actions are all an expression of worship. In the first chapter of Romans, the Apostle Paul explains this concept.
“because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.” Romans 1:25 (ESV)
Parents’ Role
Your children will be shaped and controlled by whatever they worship. Their decisions and choices either affirm that they are living in obedience to God or that they are exchanging God for someone or something else. Most children, and adults too for that matter, do not see themselves this way. When we make sinful choices, we do not consciously admit that we are denying God’s authority in our lives. Our role as godly parents is to faithfully live out and point out this TRUTH to our children. And remember to always speak the truth in love. (Eph. 4:15).
I’m praying for you! Let me know how I can help or better serve you and your family.
in HIS service,Pastor Mark
P.S. The themes and main ideas come from Paul David Tripp’s book “Age of Opportunity”. I’m summarizing what I read, adding my own thoughts and Scripture too.
