Before his conversion, the Psalms were a great stumbling block to C. S. Lewis regarding the repeated commands to praise God. Lewis writes, “It seemed as if God was like a vain woman seeking her next compliment.” But in his conversion, Lewis soon learned that authentic praise is always the consummation of joy. God’s call to praise Him is God’s call for us to come and enjoy Him! God’s exhortation is not about His need to shore up some self-esteem issues, it’s about our urgent need to know and enjoy Him more fully!
- This Sunday – We will gather for worship at 17:30. Covid protocols remain in place.
- Young Adult Bible Study – Zoom this Saturday at noon.
- Women’s Bible Study – Zoom next Monday at 14:00.
God’s call to praise Him is a call to settle no more! To stop playing with sin and to wholeheartedly give ourselves to the pursuit and enjoyment of our awesome God!
