Lord willing, and if the creek doesn’t rise, in just a few days, Sunday morning will arrive, and it will be a time for you to decide about worship with your church family.
Here at North Heights, we have been meeting in person for over 2 months, and everyone is still safe. We have plenty of room for you, and we want to encourage you to be with us this Sunday. However, no matter if you are with us in person or online, we all have to prepare our minds for worship. Here are a few ways to really help you get in the mindset to worship the Almighty God:
- Start with the Heart. We all carry our own responsibility for how we prepare our hearts for worship. You can’t get my heart ready, and I can’t get your heart ready. Each person arriving for worship (in-person or online) has to have a time of personal preparation. God calls us to worship Him “in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), so we have to consistently ask ourselves about the state of our heart, as we prepare and make ourselves ready to worship Him.
- Prepare with Positivity. The Jews might have been on to something since they observed the Sabbath from sundown the evening before to sundown the day of. It might be a good idea for us to start on Saturday night with an anticipation that the Lord’s day is coming. That is a positive outlook on life. Are we promised the next day? Of course not. We are not promised the next minutes. However, the positive Christian begins to seek out how they can worship God the next day on Saturday night. Don’t let Sunday morning roll around, and then you have to prepare. Start the positive preparations at least the day before.
- Arrive with Awareness. There is a short window from the time that you get up Sunday morning, eat breakfast and head out the door or log in to our Youtube channel (I can’t believe I have to type this) that provides a perfect time for you to self reflect and be aware of who you are and what you are about to do. It is a critical time for us to consider how we interact with our family and friends. It is a vital time for us to remind ourselves that we are part of the body of Christ that is meeting all over the world. It is imperative for us to quieten our spirits, be more patient, and understanding. The service will begin shortly, and it is so essential for us to remember who we are and who’s we are.
Sunday is coming!
Be ready to worship!
I love you,
