Things To Do For God. #Digidisiple

If there’s one thing that jumps out of my memories of Old Testament lessons from Sunday School, its that Solomon built one heck of a decent temple. Why? Well the message version of 1 Kings chapter 5 puts it simple enough, “Build a temple in honor of God, my God, following the promise that God gave to David my father, namely, ‘Your son whom I will provide to succeed you as king, he will build a house in my honor“.

I guess the obvious thing to think about here then, is what do we do to honor God in our lives?

Well take a seat, maybe listen to History Maker by Delirious, and check out our things to do for God..

1. Build a Temple.

Get some wood, and other building materials together, and get building.

Oh and don’t forget the planning permission.

2. Lead Worship at Church.

If the above fails, then learn to play the guitar. The church loves people who can lead huge crowds of people in worship.

3. Speak Out for God!

Good with the words? Clear public speaker? Consider asking if you could join the preaching team?

4. Do EVERYTHING!

Cant play music? Not great at speaking in front of people?

You could be THAT person that goes to every church event that you can go to!

You could even try smiling as much as the lady above.

5. Maybe… consider being nicer…

Its winter. Its all abit darker outside.

With Christmas approaching, and money running out, everyone both online and offline seems to be getting a little stressed.

Remember. If someone tweets something you dont really like, you dont have to reply straight away.

And if you really have a problem… maybe… take it up via Direct Messages or something?

6. Live Your Life.

If all else fails. Live your life.


Enough said?
