Don’t Let the Rocks Steal from You

God will be worshiped.

God will bring honor and glory to His name. He will be worshiped.

The heavenly hosts were created to worship Him. The angels sing His praise all the day long.

One day, in heaven, we will join that unending chorus, singing Holy, Holy, Holy to the Lamb.

God will be worshiped. He will be given His honor. It’s all about Him. In life. In death. In everything.

We have been given this great calling; this great task. As the church, as Christians, we have been given this mission to cry out, to sing, to worship, to give glory to God.

But, what if we refuse. What if we say that we will not? Listen to what Jesus says will happen if we don’t worship in Luke 19:37-40:

As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest! And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, Teacher, rebuke your disciples. He answered, I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.

If we don’t worship, the rocks will cry out. He will raise up the rocks to give voice.

God will be worshiped. That’s our job. That’s our calling.

And here’s the thing. When we do that, we find the life that we need, the life that we seek, the life that we want.

We find what we were created for.

Worship, glorifying God, giving Him praise, it’s what we were made for. You were made for that, to glorify God.

Don’t let the rocks steal that joy from you. Live into God made you to be. Life for that calling.

And in that, you’ll find the life that you seek!
