Isaiah 1:11

What is not efficacious worship?

More often than not, people get it in their head, that they have a better way of honoring God, than that which God requests and requires.

So, the sacrifices, or the worships, or the motions people go through toward God, are outward only, and…

“What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me?” Says the Lord. “I
have had enough of burnt offerings of rams, And the fat of fed cattle. And I
take no pleasure in the blood of bulls, lambs, or goats. NASB

More often than not, people get it in their head, that they have a better way of honoring God, than that which God requests and requires.

So, the sacrifices, or the worships, or the motions people go through toward God, are outward only, and not from the heart. The heart represents the circulation of thought in the soul. And more particularly the circulation of doctrine in the soul.

However, the circulation of doctrine, requires a knowledge of doctrine, as well as a dwelling in the fellowship sphere. And knowledge of doctrine requires a daily study in order to learn it.

Most folks do not confess on a regular basis, and therefore are most often living their lives out of fellowship. Likewise, most folks do not participate in a study of any kind, let alone a daily study, and therefore come up with their own ideas of how to honor God.

That is what Cain did, and his sacrifice, his approach, was rejected by God.

So, you can sing all of the songs, quote all of the scriptures, say all of the right things (in public or anywhere), but if you have not follow Gods mandate for studying and learning, and in accordance with His prescribed method for studying and learning, then all of your efforts are for naught. Anything done your own way (by the energy of the flesh), is a useless effort.

Regardless of who you might impress, regardless of your impressing yourself, all things done apart from Gods authorized method, are useless efforts. Even doing them in great quantities as the Israelites were doing here.

Gods mandate is to ‘study to show thyself approved (mature).’ Doctrine is the food for the soul. Food is consumed on a daily basis in order to maintain some semblance of health. Therefore, doctrine must be consumed daily as food is consumed daily. Doctrine must be metabolized properly lest it is rejected by the soul for no value. This metabolism occurs while you are in fellowship. You study, you learn, you accept it, and you benefit by it. You learn, you use, you grow and mature. This is all done while living in fellowship.

Anything else in life gives you zero benefit.

If matters not how loud you sing, or whether or not you know the words to the songs. It matters not how often you attend church. It matter not what vocabulary you use in conversation. It matters not who you are trying to impress. It matter not what you wear or where you live.

If the doctrine is not from the soul, then your spiritual life is dysfunctional and useless.

God is not impressed by your effort nor the volume of your effort, unless you pursue your spiritual life correctly.

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
