the Church Podcast

Sustained - Worship 3: The Intentional Choice show art Sustained - Worship 3: The Intentional Choice

the Church Podcast

Focus:  God induces worship.  And yet, even the early church didn’t stop there.  They made the intentional choice to devote themselves to the apostles teaching, to fellowship, sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.  In other words, they intentionally devoted themselves to gathering together for worship.  God blesses us in worship, and part of activating our faith is being intentional about our choices, including prioritizing worship, and our level of engagement.  Would you say you are devoted? Main Text: Acts 2:42-47
