WORSHIPPING BLINDLY – Wednesday November 5th 2014

Memorise: Ye worship know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. John 4:22
Read: Exodus 32:2-4, Bible in one year: 2nd Kings 6:24-8:24, Proverbs 21:30-22-12
The void created in man, following the departure of God’s glory from him as a result of the great fall in the Garden of Eden (Romans 3:23), yearns to be filled up. Unfortunately, the archenemy of man – Satan, has blinded the eyes of many to the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the only means by which this void can be filled (2nd Corinthians 4:4)

Jesus is the only way back to God. John 14:6 says,
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
When people appear religious without a real encounter with the gospel of Jesus, or refuse to open the door of their hearts to Jesus, though they are full of activities in the house of God, they merely worshipping blindly. In the words of today’s memory verse, they are worshipping what they know not of. Some are high up there in leadership positions, but they are like Aaron, they are acquainted with all the spiritual terminologies of the Christian life, but do not know God. Aaron was next to Moses in leadership over Israel, but the man Aaron could not be said to really know who God is. If he did, when the people were clamouring for a god because of the long absence of Moses, he would have known that God cannot be found in objects.

It is only in Jesus that God can be truly seen and known; any other way is an exercise in blindness or groping in darkness

Key Point
Jesus, and Him alone is the way, the truth and the life, there is non any other.
