Four “Perks” to Loving and Knowing God

We should worship the Lord simply because He demands, desires, and deserves it.  However, there are some fantastic “perks” to loving and knowing our heavenly Father.

  1. Character development: We always become what we worship.  If we focus on the world or other individuals, we’ll become like them.  If we focus on God, we’ll become more like Him.
  2. Freedom from intimidation: See Colossians 2:6-10.
  3. Compassion: We naturally develop compassion for the world as we learn to look through God’s eyes.
  4. True satisfaction (in God): Once we’ve feasted on the bread of God, nothing else is nearly as tempting.  Indeed, we can do anything!  See Philippians 4:10-13.
