So tonight is the David Crowder Band concert here in Greensboro, NC. I am uber excited about getting to see them in concert! Their music is utterly enjoyable and extremely worshipful. However it's their creativity that I enjoy most. This is a group of believers creating on the highest level, and doing it with excellence. After all, anything done in His name, or to His glory, requires our best effort.
When you get a chance, read through Solomon's effort to build the Temple. It's found in chapters 2 through 4 of 2 Chronicles. I've been to the Biltmore House, one of the finest residences ever constructed in the United States. No expense was spared in the building of this wonderful North Carolina home. But it pales in comparison to what was used in the building of the Temple. I'm not going to spoil your read of 2 Chronicles - but check this out - The Most Holy Place was overlaid with 23 tons of fine gold! The nails used were 20 ounces of gold EACH! Talk about building a structure that's as worthy of His presence as humanly possible!
1 Corinthians 10:31 reads - So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. He deserves our excellence, nothing less. Where in your life today are you giving Him your best, and where do you hold back from full-out surrendering to Him?
