I have to open by the following verse:
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.-Revelation 4:11
The first thing that I want to do before I say anything else is Praise be to God. The first thing that I want to do is worship. You know, worship comes from an old english term which means to give worth to or to pay homage to. Essentially, the word can be broken down to say "worth ship". The first word of that is worth. I sometimes wonder what we value in life or what we consider is worthy of our attention and worthy of our praise. So, the first thing that I want to do is give praise to what is valuable in my life and that is God himself, our creator and our sustainer of life.
What do you consider value in your life? What is most imporatant to you? Do you realize that everyone worships something? Whatever you spend the most time doing and whatever is most valuable to you is what you are worshipping. Have you ever thought about that? So, as I open up with this blog I want to say praise be to God!
