Increase My Faith - Let Me Praise You Honestly

The dominant theme during this Lenten Season is: “Lord, Increase My Faith.” This is the first in a series of Bible study lessons on how to strengthen our faith. This week, the lesson focuses on honesty and sincerity in worship. “Don’t come into the presence of God to impress Him with something He gave you!” These words of Rev. T. D. Jakes capture the theme of honest worship. Worship is our faith in God in motion. It is the response of the believer’s entire being, which includes the emotions, body, will, and mind. Honest worship is giving God all He has given us. As C. S. Lewis wrote, “It is in the process of being worshiped that God communicates His presence to men.” This is why we worship God, not to impress Him, but so that He can inhabit us.

Bless More and Curse Less!

The instinctive response to personal harm is to retaliate or to seek revenge. This can be dangerous today since we live in a world that seems to be turning less hospitable every day. We tend to curse or retaliate against those who harm us. We often ignore the harm we do. Some intentionally harm others for personal gain. Sadly, and in some cases, we harm other for our own pleasure and enjoyment. In a sense, we chose to curse or destroy our surroundings, rather than bless and revive what is around us.
Has no one taught us to live and do no harm? Yes, Jesus did. In the Sermon on the Mount, which continues in the readings for this week, Jesus tells us that our world would be better if we bless, and make holy what God has given us. When God is in the center of our relationships, we bless more and curse less.
