Worship Driven Life

solitude_photography31Why were you born? Why are you here? Why did God create you and I? Why did He send Jesus to save you and I from our sins? What are we teaching our children about the meaning of their life? What have we made the meaning of our life?

Good questions to think about. As you do, allow A.W. Tozer to help:

God has been busy redeeming people back to Himself, back to the original purpose of their being mirrors of His glory.

Yes, worship of the loving God is man’s whole reason for existence. That is why we are born and that is why we are born again from above. That is why we were created and that is why we have been recreated. That is why there was a genesis at the beginning, and that is why there is a re-genesis, called regeneration.

That is also why there is a church. The Christian church exists to worship God first of all. Everything else must come second or third or fourth or fifth. (Taken from Whatever Happened to Worship? on p. 56)

Many live their entire lives in rejection of their created purpose. May we all remember each day that our creation, preservation, and salvation are not ultimately about us. We were made for Him.
