“that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His great might…” -Ephesians 1:17-19
The deeper we go in our study of theology, the deeper we should go in our trust in God, awe of God, humility before God, and worship of God. -B. Parsons via Twitter
“I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord.” -Philippians 4:2
The source of just about all conflict is attitude, which comes from a lack of knowledge of God. Your theology is going to rule your relationships. What you believe about God will rule how you relate to others. -Steve Wainright from 11/1/2015 Sunday Morning Sermon on Philippians 4:1-4 (Listen Here)
Sunday Morning Worship | Luke 1:46-56 | Pastor Steve Wainright
“My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” -Luke 1:46
Mary’s song is Scripture-soaked. This little 12-14 year old girl has woven some deep theology into her worship. She’s rooted in the Word of God.
She brags about the Lord’s greatness. He is enlarged in her life. (Psalm 34:2-3) Think about His attributes. Ponder His mercy. The more you know about God, the greater ability you have to enlarge Him in your own life.
Because of her overwhelming thoughts and view of God, she overflows with joy. She was a humble individual, realizing she was a sinner…a nobody…but God visited her in a special way.
The focal point in her worship was the Lord. God her Savior. The One who is mighty. The Holy One. The merciful God.
