Humbly SERVING others is truly OBEDIENT WORSHIP

Jesus says in Luke 14: 5

He said, “Which of you whose son or ox falls into a well, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?

Yes, Trinitarians and all of our friends, our service and our worship are inextricably tied together. In Third Ward Texas and Oak Cliff Texas, where I was reared, this meant these terms (serve and worship) couldn’t be “pulled apart” or separated. You can’t have one without the other even though many of us try very hard to do so.

Pastor, do you understand that I do what I can and as often as I can. I read my Bible and I bring my dues. What is it that I’m missing?

Answer: A bunch and ultimately, your lunch.

Our Tuesday evening lesson nailed it. The Pharisees were so busy in their attempt to “catch” Jesus in a fault they completely missed the boat and fell in the (cold) water of doubt. It can be said they, like some of us are busy bodies but, losing sleep and energy on the wrong projects.

Consequently, as one Commentator said, we are led to believe that our service and our worship are but entertainment for Jesus and His Church.  Our Playbill for this Play would indicate that some are merely putting on a “show” for Jesus.

The credits would reveal:

The Star……………………………Me

The Producer                 ………….. Satan

The Production Team…………      My friends

The Story Line…………………… My thoughts

The Scene…………………………My House

But Jesus wasn’t stopped nor was He impressed with their version of the most important thing. On several occasions, the Pharisees didn’t see the necessity of doing what Jesus did and taught.

We’re CALLED to SERVE in Two Thousand 1, 9.

     With the help and direction from the DIVINE

My WORSHIP is sure to be pleasing and SUBLIME.

Lord Have Mercy!
