What You’re Born For

2 Feb

What You’re Born For…

You say, it’s hard to worship and pray; it’s not for you. You spend hours watching TV or on the internet, but can’t spend time worshiping? Not cut out for it.

If you’re born again, you are born to worship. According to I Peter, you are kohaneem, a priest. As in the Old Covenant, you are kohaneem in the New, born to worship and praise God. Not cut out for it?

No, no, you were born for it in the new birth; it’s in your new nature, and your new heart. It’s more natural for you to be in His presence than watching TV; to listen to His voice than the radio; to read His word rather than that magazine, to look at Him rather than that object of lust.

You were born a royal priest to worship Him, to dwell in His glory. It’s your new nature. Believe it; exercise it. Do as every priest–enter His presence, dwell in His courts, minister to your God, and you will find the joy and desire of your heart because the priests, the kohaneem, are called to worship. It’s the very thing they were born to fulfill.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

Remove obstacles stopping you from learning what it feels like to be in His presence the whole day – sing His praises, talk to Him, find your joy there. You will find the secret of His blessings.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
