How about just worshipping and following Jesus just because He deserves it. Not because we (I) can get something in return, saved friends, parents, better stuff. These things He may be gracious and grant you (me) them. But do I still love Him even when He doesn't appear to be answering my prayers? Do I still follow regardless or do I get discouraged and give up because I didn't get what I wanted?
Some times I am so much like my children....crying and complaining when I don't get my own way or God says NO or even worse wait!!
I need to shut up and listen to Jesus and follow just because.
