Off The Rock

18 May

Off The Rock…

Most born again believers aren’t fond of rituals. They look at the older and more traditional denominations and note the lifelessness in most of their traditions, rituals, and rites. And many rituals, though not all, are indeed without life.

That’s because you can perform rituals without the heart. But there are many kinds of rituals, not just those of the traditional churches.

When you lose the fire, the zeal, and the first love of your faith, you’ll often find yourself living in the realm of rituals… doing the right things, praying, going to service, worshiping, saying the right words, even abstaining from sin… but doing it no longer from your heart, or from passion and love for God.

Then you’ve entered the realm of rituals. Is that you? If so, then get back to the heart of worship, the heart of praise, the heart of serving, the heart of ministering, the heart of obeying, the heart of repentance, and the heart of loving Him. For God doesn’t want you to waste your life in the realm of rituals, but to come back to the realm of Him.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

Have you found yourself in a rut or routine in your life or your walk with God? Break out of it today in worship and love and zeal for God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
