Begin now to form in your life a new attitude, a new lifestyle that will bless God, praise God, thank God and honor God. Live out that new attitude and lifestyle in your prayers, in your homes, in your community and in your Church.
You are invited to then join many other prepared servants who will come on May 1-2 to bless God at a powerful once-a-year event. Sounds deliciously irresistible to me!
Psalm 134 not only invites you to bless God, but also understands that you will, in turn, be blessed by the Creator of heaven and earth, so much so that, in turn, you will have an opportunity to be a blessing to others. May the results of collectively inclining our ears toward God bring renewal in our churches on May 3rd. Sounds like a win-win to me!
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26-NRSV)
