One of the things that constantly amazes me about the Church (and I use a capital "C" on purpose because I'm not just thinking about Zion... but about THE Church) is the incredibly diverse ways in which we can honour Jesus.
We can gather together on Sunday mornings to give to praise Him by singing, praying, hearing a sermon, encouraging one another and more.
We can gather together to praise Him at a business meeting, where we discuss and vote on a church budget, hear reports about what He has done in our midst and elect people to specific ministry roles.
We can gather together to praise Him by sharing a meal and talking about how the Gospel of Jesus is changing us.
In Philippians chapter 1 we are reminded that Jesus will help us to grow in love, knowledge and understanding. The end result? Well Philippians 1:11 says: "May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God."
It amazes me that we can bring much praise and glory to God as we eat a meal together... as we approve a budget together... as we gather for a service of celebration.
Over the next few weeks we have all of these things happening (a service, a potluck, an Annual General Meeting), plus more! My prayer is that as we do these things our focus, our priority, will be to bring much glory and praise to God.
