t “…that in all things he might have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18
As Christians, often our focus is self-centered- getting our needs met, answers to prayer, direction, help in times of trouble. We buy books, and self-help guides and other resources to guide us. Even within the church, we hear listener focused messages about how to behave and how to treat one another and how that we should serve. We may feel that we have received help and encouragement, and maybe even view this as worship, but if it is not focused on the Lord- who He is, and what He’s done, and knowing Him so that we might have that same mind of Chris, so that we might become more like Him, then these are only superficial band-aid fixes for our problems. True worship isn’t about us and what we can get and what we do, and how we feel or respond. The heart of true worship is this: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” Philippians 3:10
“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30
“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:” Philippians 3:8
