1 Jn 2:12-17
Ps 96: 7-8a, 8b-9, 10
Lk 2:36-40

I absolutely love how God has called us to be set apart from this world and calls us His own. I know there are so many times in my own life that I don’t feel worthy to be called a child of God or feel that I deserve His mercy and grace. But we are called from the beginning to be His children, and if we truly love the Father, we cannot love this world. It’s like a challenge that God has given us: do the simple thing every day and love Him so that we will not be a part of this world. I feel like this is God’s call for us to worship Him.

Worshiping God is an amazing experience every time for me and I love that I serve a God that longs to be worshiped. There’s a quote that says, “If God was small enough to comprehend, He wouldn’t be big enough to worship.” That is so true! Our God is truly amazing and I don’t think there could be anything better than just getting to worship and spend uninterrupted time with Him every day.

I hope that we can all develop a passion for worship like the prophetess Anna in today's Gospel. It says she stayed in the temple night and day while fasting and praying. How amazing would it be to have a life devoted to prayer and worship?! It certainly is possible. Even in our busy days there is always time for prayer. My hope and prayer is that we can all develop that kind of intimate relationship with God to the point where we can’t help but think about God and long to worship Him.
