Well, it’s Sunday again. How do you feel about this Sunday? Is it difficult for you to get out of bed? Do you have children to wrangle, feed and dress them before bundling them into a car and driving to church? How is your heart this Sunday morning? Is it cold or indifferent to the things of God? Maybe you haven’t seen God’s blessing in your life for some time now. Would you rather stay in bed or drive to the beach than go to church? Maybe you can identify with these thoughts and feelings. I know that this has been my experience at times.
I’m glad that our Christian experience is not based on how we feel on any given Sunday. I’m glad that our Christian experience is rather based on the real man, the God-man Jesus Christ who came to earth, lived a perfect life, suffered and died in our place and brought us back into relationship with his Father – the God and creator of the universe. Our creator, our Father. And he is a father who loves us and blesses us with himself.
Psalm 34 is a great Psalm to meditate on as we gather with other Christians on a Sunday to worship God together.
“I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. (V2-3)
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. (v8)
Maybe reading the whole Psalm today will prepare your heart to enjoy that collective worship experience with other believers around about you.
