Scripture: 1 Peter 3:15
but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect
Is the hope you profess with your lips written in your life? Can people see the Lordship of Christ in your heart? As you prepare for our worship gathering this Sunday take a moment and ask God, Am I living the life I profess to have?

As many have said before, we don’t enter into corporate worship and begin to worship. We come into the space already worshiping. Our hearts have been loving and desiring in all kinds of directions this week. The first step is to simply recognize and confess that fact, praying that the Holy Spirit would increasingly narrow the gap between the worship offered on Sundays and the worship offered Mondays through Saturdays. The worshiper who grows in orienting her heart toward God Monday through Saturday (whole-life worship) will find herself more calibrated for Sundays (gathered worship). Zac Hicks
