GOD'S GLORY: "Okay, roll the dice. He's had his minute."

Years ago when the billionaire Howard Hughes died, his company’s public relations director asked the casinos in Las Vegas, where Hughes owned multiple casinos, to show him respect by giving him a minute of silence. For an uncomfortable sixty seconds, the casinos fell eerily silent. Then a pit boss looked at his watch, leaned forward, and whispered, 
“Okay, roll the dice. He’s had his minute.” 

(From the book, Howard Hughes: The Hidden Years, cited in “Our Daily Bread,” 11/77.)

The Priority of True Worship (John 4:23-24)

All true worshipers are sincere,


all sincere worshipers are not true. 

Here are a few definitions of worship:
 “Worship is our innermost being responding with praise for all that God is, through our attitudes, actions, thoughts, and words, based on the truth of God as He has revealed Himself” 
 “Worship is all that we are, reacting rightly to all that He is”.
“To worship is to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God, to feed the mind with the truth of God, to purge the imagination by the beauty of God, to open the heart to the love of God, and to devote the will to the purpose of God”
“Worship, by the way, is not music. Worship is loving God. Worship is honoring God. Worship is knowing God for who He is, adoring Him, obeying Him, proclaiming Him as a way of life. Music is one way we express that adoration.” 
an inner attitude and feeling 
awe, reverence, gratitude, and love 
resulting from a realization 
who ~(6!9)~  is
who WE are."

I'M still W.A.S.P.!
