— Acts 13:2 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When people genuinely worship, when they fast seeking his will, God calls them to service and mission. Christian worship is not an end in itself, but a launching pad to Christian mission. Don't get so caught up in the worship experience that you leave it at the door when you walk away. Instead, understand that it is to inspire you to public worship and service in the world during your everyday life (Romans 12:1-2). As you worship with your brothers and sisters, also listen to the words of the songs, the message of the Scripture, and the conviction of the Holy Spirit on your heart. God may be calling you to a special mission in your world!

My Prayer...

Father, please help me clearly discern your will and follow your leading while I am worshiping you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
