real lifeMany believers run away from our Father believing they are missing something exciting in their lives. They believe that the world offers something more fulfilling, something greater, and something different than the simplicity of being a Christian. It is true, — fancy homes, new automobiles, exotic vacations, and a variety of other material, physical, fleshly, carnal appetites can quickly cause a soul to wander from the fold of God. It is a fast, entertaining life-style. It has an insatiable diet that can only be maintained by good health and lots of wealth. Just like the story of the Prodigal Son, our Father allows us to make choices that are self-serving, selfish, and soul-destroying. But when the money ran out, the son ran home. Your faith is only as strong as your true worship of Jesus. Our disobedience to God’s will cause us to miss out on many of His blessings that strengthen us and increase our faith.

God’s purpose for our lives is revealed in His first commandment. It states in Exodus 20:1 “And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 “You shall have no other gods before me…” Remember God is unchanging. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Jesus came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it.

In truly worshiping our heavenly Father, we can not allow worldly idols to enter in our lives and cause us to miss out on His blessings that will increase our faith. Our sole (soul) purpose in life is to worship Him. Worship is to love Him. He said, “If you love me, obey my commands.” In our faithful action of obedience, we give the world proof of our worship. Life is worshipping the King of Kings! To worship Him is to really live!
