Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. – Hebrews 12:28
We dwell in the kingdom of God. But we are not only residents in God’s country, we are children of the King!
We can be filled with thankfulness for all that God has given us: love, grace, salvation. We are His children and we live in His country, in His kingdom. This is the kind of gratitude that inspires true worship. We don’t come to God out of fear of who He is, with His compassion He has turned our fear to reverence. We don’t come to Him scared of what He might do, rather He has turned our dread into awe. The awesomeness of knowing that the maker of all things has a deep love for us.
Our salvation is as unshakable as God’s kingdom. Secure. Forever. Promised and assured by God’s power and love. Be filled with gratitude. Be filled with thankfulness. Be filled with praise. Worship God!
