The Worship of Revelation

I decided to sit down and take the time to do a word study in Revelation. As I read through the book looking for each mention of “worship” I also noticed that the word “repent” is used again and again. I’ll look more deeply into that at a later time. For now, I was focusing […]

A Look at the Word “Repent”

I continued my research in Revelation tonight (8-16-2016) by looking at the word “repent.” I noticed that it was used again and again and I wanted to know what the word looked like in the original language (Greek). I found the word “repent” 12 times in my ESV translation. Each and every time it means […]

Devotional: Worship God in Spirit and Truth

Recently, I was thinking about Romans 12:1. It states: “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” In this particular verse, the word ‘worship,’ when peeled back, means “reasonable service.” (In the original language) […]

Devotional: The Art of Neighboring

If you read the ESV version like me, it will end with “your neighbors” (plural). So simply put, the entire grouping […]

Give God all the Praise and Worship?

Lately, I hear people saying, “Give God all the praise and worship.” It’s sort of becoming a catchy phrase, I think. “God gets all of our praise and worship!” I’ve been pondering this and so I dug a little bit into what this statement implies. In Revelation 19:10 we see John falling down to worship […]

Devotional: Meditation In, Not Out

Recently, my husband Rick saw a notice on the apartment complex bulletin board, asking for help. A local resident needed someone to get the mail each day (because this person is housebound). Rick replied saying that he/we would do it. Sometimes I go and I stay to chat with our neighbor while Rick gets the […]

Devotional: Let’s be Perfect

Below is a devotional that I jotted down for our Bible Study wall on Facebook. Sharing here for anyone interested. Monday’s post: Let’s be Perfect Last week I dug in to James 1:2-4 a bit, looking at the original writings. That helped me, as I think we get confused about what “perfect” means in Scripture. […]
