Worship Over Rituals

Hosea 6 6

Verse of the Day:  Hosea 6:6

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

God is more pleased with us showing mercy, love and compassion towards all people rather than formalities. More than sacrifices God wants you to know Him on a personal level. He wants you to trust in Him, submit to His will and be obedient to His laws. God wants you to worship Him in spirit and in truth rather than go through the motion of ceremonies when your heart is not right with Him. Rituals and sacrifices have their place in organized religion, but God wants your heart to be truly in it for the right reasons otherwise, they are meaningless.

Know Him Personally

Psalm 139 16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 139:16

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

 

Before we were ever born, God saw us and He knew all about us. He knew everything from our first day to our last. He sees us, He hears us, He knows our thoughts and He knows our hearts. Isn’t it wonderful to know that our God knows us personally?  Now, we must not only know of Him and His works, but we must seek to know Him personally.
