Worship God–obey leaders!
Scripture reading for October 31st: Hebrews 13
Key Scriptures for over-comers: Hebrews 13:15-17 “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that confess His name. And do not forget to do good and share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work may be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.”
Worship is a powerful response of faith that centers our souls on an omnipotent and loving God. It enables us to do good works and help others no matter how hostile the environment. God is worthy of our praises and is pleased by good works done through faith. Obedience to leaders and joyful submissions to their authority provides a protective covering over us and our families. These leaders have been placed by God to help you and watch over you.
Observations for over-comers: Worship involves praising God with our lips and doing good deeds by obeying the word of God and following the Holy Spirit. “He who obeys instructions guards his life, but he who is contemptuous of his ways will die.” (Proverbs 19:16)
