#600 - Joseph Prince - Experience Abundance In Times Of Famine - Part 2
The primary reason that Jesus laid down his life is not to bear our sins. That's not the primary, he did bear our sins but that's not the primary reason. Is to glorify God. His heart's desire is always to fulfill God's will. He wants, "I desire always to please him. I always please the Father. My meat, my nourishment, is to do the will of him that send me". No wonder the Father love him. The Father love him always.
When we do certain things, amen, that is in line with God's will, amen, God is well pleased. When you praise God, God is well pleased. And notice it says, "With such sacrifices. When we give, God is well pleased".
For us, it's a priesthood ministry when we minister to the Lord, amen, the Lord wants us in front of him. And the Bible says: "Lift up your hands, you whose hands are bowed down", all right, at night. "Lift up your hands", David says. So we minister to the Lord in worship, in praise. And today, how you minister to the Lord is to always worship the Lord with things that remind him of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Father loves the Son, and the Father loves to be reminded of his Son.
When people mock you and scorn you, and try to discourage you from your assignment in the Lord, from what God has called you to do, just look to God, amen? Don't curse them, don't fight against them, amen. Ascend higher.
