Tell Me Who (or What) Do You Love?

I’m reading a really engaging book right now…one that’s been on my shelf for quite a while that I’ve avoided reading because I know of the conviction I’ll feel within upon reading it…
I’m going to attempt to blog a bit as I journey through this text, which is challenging who I am as a worship leader, a worshipper, and even a lover of things and people…(more to come on that last one).  There are times when, as a worshipper and as a worship leader, its hard to lead people to a place of deep, cleansing, refreshing, living water, when your own heart is desperately dry.  And it doesn’t get any easier the more you do it.  I’ve lead worship every Sunday (with few exceptions) since early 2001.  And the time has come for some heart-treatment.  Maybe, just maybe, this blog will be an outlet for me…

First thing that struck me in today’s reading was a very simple quote… “We can’t love anything in the right way unless we love God more.”
Took me a while to pick myself up and go on after reading that…

Finally for today, a quote from Isaac Watts, as quoted by Charles Spurgeon…

“The Great God values not the service of me, if the heart not be in it: The Lord sees and judges the heart; he has no regard to outward forms of worship, if there be no inward adoration, if no devout affection be employed therein.  It is therefore a matter of infinite importance, to have the whole heart engaged steadfastly for God.”

So, tell me…who (or what) do you love?
