Our worship of God is the ultimate goal of the Gospel. Worship answers the question “Why?” for everything we do as a church. Our worship of God is the root of every good fruit in His church. If we as a church are lacking in any horizontal dimension, we must begin by attending to the root.
God is faithful and wise in His workings in human history. Do not be dismayed by what you see, but trust Him to fulfill His promises. Human unbelief does not frustrate God’s gracious plans. Know that He is working in the affairs of men to bring Himself glory.
God’s rejection of Israel was never final, nor full. Indeed, God never fully rejects those whom He has promised to faithfully love. A remnant is always present and is much larger than we often perceive.
The most basic duty and greatest need for each believer is to consciously place our whole person under the Lordship of Jesus each day, including both the belief in our heart as well as the confession with our mouth.
