As we move through the Word of God to see what He is saying to us in 2019. We go to a very familiar chapter in Psalm. What does what us to hear from him today.
Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
As we have said over and over and God says it to us: It is not about me. Western Christianity thinks and practice a self-centered , self-absorbing religion.
A pastor who visited China was asked by one of the pastor there to pray that they would be like the people in the US who had freedom to worship. He relpied absolutely not, I will pray that we will be like you.
