Worship the King

“Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah”

Psalm 24:7-10

I’m not gonna worship money, I’m gonna worship You, my God and King!

“You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob.”

Psalm 44:4 (NIV)

And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace to you!’ 27 Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.’ And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”                                          John 20:26-28

 

 

Teach us to Pray

Dear Lord, the disciples in Your day, were seekers, too, in Luke 11:1. We get so off course sometimes, and we all think we’re right and the other wrong.  And forgive us for being in our own comfortable cliques, / churches (clubs).  Let us really love each other, pray for our neighbors and enemies and Love first always.  Be the fool for You.

1 Corinthians 4:10, (NIV), “We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored!”
