How do you extend the blessing and refreshment from Sunday’s worship into the rest of your week? If yesterday you had the privilege, like I did, of attending a church where the music, preaching and fellowship encouraged your heart and brought you closer to Jesus, you don’t want to leave all that goodness with the weekend.
If a particular song spoke to my heart, I like to print the words and post them on the fridge or my bathroom mirror. When I worked in an office, I’d tape them to the bottom of my computer screen. If the message from God’s Word challenged or encouraged me, I like to review the passage along with the sermon notes during my daily quiet time. Sometimes I get the DVD from the service and listen to it while I drive or clean the house.
If God spoke to your heart on Sunday, don’t let that fade away into the business of the week. Make a conscious effort to include that encouragement into your routine.
Here’s a similar arrangement of the song I heard the choir sing yesterday. It’s not a particularly new song, but I hope the words will speak to your heart as they did mine (although the slideshow isn’t really my taste – sorry about that).
Tell me: How do you extend the blessing and refreshment from Sunday’s worship into the rest of your week?
