Knowledge. Worship. Gratitude.


“So that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful.”

Romans 1:20, 21

THOSE who boast of their knowledge betray their ignorance. Knowledge is not a possession to be proud of, since it brings with it so great a responsibility that a nurse might as well be proud of watching over a life in peril.

Knowledge may become good or ill according to the use which is made of it. If men know God, for instance, and then glorify him as God, and are thankful, their knowledge has become the means of great blessing to them; but if they know God, and fail to glorify him, their knowledge turns to their condemnation.

There is a knowledge which does not puff up the mind, but builds up the soul, being joined with holy love.

from a sermon by C H Spurgeon

May we enjoy good fellowship and worship as we seek know the God who made us and gave His Son to the world.
