Dedicating a place to God means transitioning from God visiting to inhabiting our lives. When we dedicate the best place, new blessings come into our lives where we can experience the rest, fellowship, sustenance, and inspiration of God. Pastor Jonathan ended our Dedicated series by sharing how we can dedicate a place to God and the incredible blessings that come through God inhabiting our lives.
2 Kings 4:8–10 NLT: “8 One day Elisha went to the town of Shunem. A wealthy woman lived there, and she urged him to come to her home for a meal. After that, whenever he passed that way, he would stop there for something to eat. 9 She said to her husband, ‘I am sure this man who stops in from time to time is a holy man of God. 10 Let’s build a small room for him on the roof and furnish it with a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp. Then he will have a place to stay whenever he comes by.’”
2 Samuel 6:10–11 NLT: “10 So David decided not to move the Ark of the Lord into the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-edom of Gath. 11 The Ark of the Lord remained there in Obed-edom’s house for three months, and the Lord blessed Obed-edom and his entire household.”
Worship is not what you think. It’s more than just singing your favorite song during a weekend church service. Worship is something special where God’s presence is found, and it’s not limited to the four walls of a church building. True worship is about dedication, obedience, and presenting our lives as an offering for Christ. Through “Dedicated,” we will look at new ways to worship that will bring us into a deeper understanding of being living sacrifices for Jesus.
