Worship Wednesday

2 Corinthians 4:13-18
Matthew 6:19-24

Well, let’s see, after Thanksgiving Thursday last week we had Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday.  I’m kind of surprised they haven’t come up with something for Sunday. How about Go To Church Sunday? I can hear it now, “Churches all around the nation were so packed on Sunday that extra seating had to be brought in for the overflow crowds.”

It is interesting though how most of these designated days revolve around material things or the temporal things in life.  At least we end with Giving Tuesday, which is a positive way to wrap up all of our consumerism. But what about Wednesday, it needs a designation too.  How about we refocus everything and designate today as Worship Wednesday?

In 2 Corinthians 4 and Matthew 6 scripture speaks of storing up treasures in heaven instead of on earth. It speaks of fixing our eyes on what is unseen (eternal) instead of on what is currently seen (temporal).  Most of all these passages and others are reminding us that our worship of Jesus is the most important thing in life. And oh yes, He is why we celebrate all of this in the first place.

December is a month that is often busy, frantic, and stressful.  But it doesn’t have to be. If we focus our attention on Christ and the gift of our Savior instead of all the other designated things, we can more fully worship him and rest in the peace that he was born to bring to us.  Worship Wednesday may not catch on around the nation, but it could. It starts by you and I praising our Lord and Savior today.

Make it Personal:  What is something you can do today to worship Jesus?  Turn on some worship music or Christmas hymns, read your Bible, pray for peace and calm during this season, help out a neighbor or church friend in need, sit in silence and listen…. or what comes to your mind on this Worship Wednesday?

 Have a blessed week, Pastor Glen Rhodes
