                                                               What is the Heart of Worship  Every year in February I write about the Heart. Valentine’s Day centers on the Heart & Love. We have all used the expression. Have a heart or he has a big heart which means a person is generous and will do anything for you. The bible speaks of Four Kinds of Hearts, which you and I should have. A Clean Heart, a Heart that is Free from evil thoughts, and there is a Happy Heart or Loving Heart. You shall Love the Lord with all your heart, and a Thankful Heart Thess. 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.   But this year I want to speak of a different kind of heart. One that can change our relationship with God. A heart that can bring revival to our churches. A heart that can bring us to where God wants us to be. If you haven’t figures it out, it’s a Worshiping Heart. The churches across this country needs to realize true worship comes from the Heart. I don’t care how good your voice is or how well you can play a instrument, if it don’t come from the Heart it’s just noise. God never called us to entertain Him but to worship Him with all our Heart. All our soul and all our strength. Psalms 86: 12, I will praise thee O Lord my God, with all my heart; and I will glorify thy name for evermore.   In the past few weeks, I have had fellowship with a number of ministers. Almost all have the same thing in common. Something has happen, the people won’t worship. I have been pleased since the first of the year to see a different atmosphere in Pleasant Grove. But we are far from where we need to be. God has laid some things on my heart of why we don’t see the move of the Holy Spirit like we want. And why we don’t see the Miracles like we want.  Yes, we go through the motions, sing the courses, even lift our hands. But our Hearts are far from worship. Then we preachers try to preach a uplifting moving message from God. And we accomplish about as much as trying to light a fire under a pile of wet wood. The pastors walk out of the pulpit drained and disgusted. I believe Rev. 2:4 We need to come back to our First Love.   It used to be when you would go to eat in a restaurant they would play a quiet dinner music. Today when you go in somewhere to eat they will be playing some head banging noise that takes your appetite away. They will play what the manager on shift or what the waitresses want and don’t think of what the People want. But we do something in church, we Never ask God what He wants, we think He is tapping His foot and clapping His hands but in the midst of all of it, His Spirit is quenched and maybe even a tear in His eyes.  Lets come back to the Heart of Worship, and try to be a Blessing to   our Lord.                                         God Bless        Pastor Denny     

If you have not received that gift of eternal life with Him, then pray this short prayer to the One who gave us victory over death through Jesus Christ.I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.  I believe that Jesus died for my sins.  I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and live as my personal Savior.  I will confess you before men, study your Word and live according to your will as you guide me.  Thank you for sending Jesus so that I might have eternal life. Your Word says in Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the hearth man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.Ame
