Devotionals by Pastor Mike Fabarez



A.W. Tozer was right when he observed that “a low view of God is the cause of a hundred lesser evils everywhere among us.” It makes sense that our specific view of God will determine the quality of our Christian life. If we view him as casual about sin, then we probably won’t care much about it either. If we perceive him to be inexact about truth, then we’ll probably be indifferent about the whole topic as well. If, on the other hand, we are working to think of God in the terms and ways he has chosen to reveal himself in Scripture, then our lives will likely begin to correspond. It is hard to regularly ponder God as transcendently glorious, perfectly holy, absolute in power, and impeccably wise without our daily attitudes and actions being shaped and molded by those truths. This is one reason personal worship is so important. When we worship our exalted God, wholeheartedly expressing and ascribing to God all the perfection that he is, our minds are shaped and our tendency to lazily think of God is countered. Of course, this should be our concern in corporate worship as well. We dare not simply mouth the words of our worship songs and hymns; our minds must be focused and engaged so that our lives will follow.
