I Will Love God's House Passionately (3 of 8)
Series: Seven Unshakable Life Declarations
Introduction: The person living an unshakable life is one who builds on the unshakable word of God. His life is anchored, immovable, and indestructible. To live this life, it is important to make faith declarations. A faith declaration unites the heart and mouth to declare by faith the word of God and unshakable life declarations.
Our second faith declaration is, "I will love God's house passionately." This is a message on how we love God's house, how we develop a love affair with God's house, the place where His glory dwells. This is our church, the place God has set us in. Our desire should be to increase our passion for the "one thing." We will choose to love God's house with passion and zeal, to cross over from attending church to having a love affair with the church. When did God's house become your house, your place, the object of your devotion?
Psalm 27:4-5 (NLT) The one thing I ask of the Lord - the thing I seek most - is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord's perfections and meditating in his Temple.
