LIFTING UP HOLY HANDS
TEXT: 1 TIMOTHY 2: 8
â€œI will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubtingâ€ (1 Timothy 2: 8).
There was a dynamic youth loved by all in his church. He was a member of the choir, played organ and led the congregation in praise worship sessions. Whenever he led, the old and young spontaneously lifted up their hands in worship. However, the pastor later discovered that he also played worldly music for entertainment houses. The Pastor confronted him with the finding and he admitted that he was not born-again. The pastor ministered to him. He gave his life to Christ and became a new man with fresh anointing. There are many youths out there playing music for money in Churches, yet unsaved. Are you genuinely saved? The Bible says: â€œGod is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truthâ€ (John 4: 24). To lift up holy hands in worship, you must be saved. If you are not, confess your sins today, admit Christ into your life and live for Him. Only then can you lift up holy hands to worship God acceptably.
Challenge: You must be holy to render acceptable worship to God.
Prayer: Cleanse me Lord from all my sins and make me holy.
Quote: Worship God in spirit and in truth.
