I heard a song on the radio that I can’t get off of my mind. I’m not sure who sings it and I certainly don’t endorse it due to some of the language used, but the hook line was – “It may not mean much to you, but it does to me.” Think about it – we all treasure things that are sentimental to us because they were given to us by someone very special or maybe they remind us of a vacation or a special moment.
But it got me to thinking – Do we make God feel that way? He has given us His word. He has laid out the plan of salvation. Hearing and believing God’s Word, repentance of our sins, confession that He is the Christ, and baptism which washes away our sins away – that’s the way He chose. Man may think that baptism isn’t necessary – you can “believe” your way to salvation. His way may not mean much to us, but does it to Him? God specified singing in worship and praise. We might think that we could use a little help by adding instruments in worship. It sounds good to us, but what does it mean to God?
May we not be guilty of trivializing things that mean much to God. He said, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts and neither are My ways your ways. (Isaiah 55:8). It may not mean much to you, but it does to Him. Simply blessed, Courtney
