TO ENJOY GOD IS TO GLORIFY HIM
Relationship > God desires relationship w/us
God desires fellowship with us.
God loves us the way a father loves his son.
Any man can be a father. It takes a special man to be a daddy.
We are far too easily satisfied.
We find satisfaction in temporal things. Coffee, food, tech, sex, money….
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord.
We have weakened the meaning of words such as love, cherish, and treasure.
We attribute value to created things rather than the Creator. We take pleasure in things we can see instead of the One that we cannot see.
Do you understand why we are called sheep?
We will follow anything or rebel against what authority we do have.
We leave the flock to seek greener pastures. A sheep without a Shepherd might as well be dead.

Our awe and wonder is misplaced. We are too easily amazed.

See what I mean?
It is quite alright to enjoy God.
To not enjoy God is to dishonor Him. To not enjoy God is to tell God that you have found something more desirable than Him.
What you cherish, treasure, makes you happiest is what you worship.

Feast on Scripture
When God truly becomes your desire,
You will find pleasure in Him more than created things.
You will find pleasure living out Scripture
You will find pleasure serving Him as His called disciple.
When God truly becomes your desire –
Your manner of life will be worthy of the Gospel of Christ. Phil. 1:27
Christ will truly be your life – Colossians 3:4
You live by the Spirit – Romans 5:8
