Get a good start

Busyness is a poor substitute for holiness.

Worship is not an earthly event we attend, it’s a heavenly event we experience.

Luke 4:14

The closer the better

Stay by His side and keep your eyes and ears open.

We will draw strength from Him and He will be our comfort and shield.

John 14:12

It’s your move

Make sure you crawl off the throne of God and onto the altar of God.

Be prepared for you feelings to follow your actions.

Luke 14:16a
