1 Theme in 4 Steps

A reading from the Psalms, the Historical books, the Gospels and the Epistles - all centered around one theme.

Worship | Remember | Believe | Surrender

Worship

Psalms 27:4 - One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

Worship: Spend some time pondering the beauty of the Lord. Tell him why he is so beautiful. Let him hear your heart of wonder and love.

Remember

Genesis 15:1-6 - After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.”

But Abram said, “O Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.”

Then the word of the Lord came to him: “This man will not be your heir, but a son coming from your own body will be your heir.” He took him outside and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars–if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”

Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

Remember: God himself is your greatest reward. Be sure to seek God first, rather than only seeking his gifts.

Believe

Matthew 6:31-34 - So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Believe: Seek Jesus first. You don’t have to worry about anything. You have him.

Surrender

Romans 4:3-5 - What does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.

Surrender: Follow Abraham's model of trusting in God. Do not allow doubt to linger. The basis for your trust is his character. He has never failed you… and he never will.

When God himself is your great reward, the other "needed things" of life fall into place. You gain a new perspective. Your longing for smaller rewards fades when the greatest reward of all - intimacy with your Father God - is at hand.

Don't forsake your Great Reward with smaller rewards. He is worth it.
