UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: People find it difficult to find a source of allegiance that is permanent and lasting. What type of response do they give when they find this lasting allegiance? The book of Revelation speaks of joyful praise and eternal worship of God.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: To truly know God is to also know that God is worthy of all blessing and honor and power and glory forever. There are many ways to praise our great God but only two times to praise God: (1) when we feel like it, and (2) when we don’t. Worship gives us hope, assurance, and a solid sense of who is in control of our world. We should never become complacent about worship or satisfied with the level of worship we have experienced. God is constantly inviting us to rise to another level of worship in order to discover new facets of God’s character and God’s nature that have not yet been discovered. Take the time to raise your level of worship and praise.
PRAYER: Dear God, let us never become satisfied with what we already know about you. Help us to see that our growth in you will always be connected to our experiences with you. The greater we will be able to be when the more we have of you and the less we have ourselves. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
