• “Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.” – Basilea Schlink

It’s About Him by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 6/29/11

“I just don’t get anything out of the worship when that fill-in guy leads! He doesn’t sing any songs I like.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We each have personal preferences about styles of worship. But did you know the purpose of praise is not for our own enjoyment but to bring God pleasure?

In Exodus 30 God gave Moses the recipe for making incense for temple worship. Then God said, “It shall be most holy to you. Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves…. Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from his people.”

Using praise to give us an emotional high is like an Israelite burning incense for the wrong reason.

True worship will bring about many blessings in our lives. But don’t forget: the ultimate purpose of praise is to bless God.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink
