Wednesday Worship

Studies show that people are more stressed and depressed on Wednesday than on any other day of the week. Here’s a lovely little Psalm to help lift your . Pray through it at least 834 times today.

I will give thanks to you, Lord,
with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

ACTS Now

When you pray, do you ever find yourself getting distracted?

You know, you start off with a hearty “Our Father” and maybe even a “who art in heaven” but then your mind starts to drift off to all the stuff you gotta do and then maybe some dumb 70s song that’s stuck in your head and then maybe sports and then …

Wait, where was I?

100% God’s

Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God — this is your true and proper worship. (Romans 12:1)

The first 11 chapters of Romans paint a beautiful picture of God’s mind-bending mercy — His grace, love, joy, peace and the great gift of faith.

Jesus on Worship

worship2We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.

Do that. Please.

Jesus responded with Command #2:

A Beautiful Thing
