Worship, true worship, is the quality a Father looks for in His children. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, to honor Him, and to worship Him. Worship means to show worth and/or value. What is God worth to you? (see John 4:19-24, Hebrews 10:19-25)
Some think that faith comes from within, inside of you, but in Ephesians 2:8, Paul reminds us that faith “is the gift of God” and that it comes from God. It is not something we can muster up or dig down deep to find. It is the fruit of God in the life of His surrendered child. In God, this is called foreknowledge. In us, it is the assurance of His foreknowledge. In Him, this is omniscience. For the Christian, it is reliance upon His omniscience.
We often think that peace is the absence of its anti-type - that its calm is nothing more than the lack of wind, waves, and rain clouds. Nothing could be further from the truth. Peace is something greater. It is not the absence of something, but the presence of Someone. It is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). It comes from God because it is part of God's nature to haply grant to us His grace of supernatural peace - even amidst the storms. Jesus said: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth , give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled , neither let it be afraid."
