Faith & Fitness Day 8: Planned for God's Pleasure

For day 8 of the Purpose Driven Life book, Rick Warren highlighted the fact that we're "Planned for God's Pleasure".  Some key points I found were as follows:

1.  God has given you the ability to enjoy pleasure
2.  God wants you to Enjoy life and not just endure it
3.  Bringing pleasure to God is called worship.  "The Lord is pleased only with those who worship him and trust his love." Psalm 147:11
4. Worship is more than music.  If its offered to God in spirit and truth, it is an act of worship.
5.  Worship is not a part of your life, it is your life.
6.  Every activity can be transformed into an act of worship when you do it for the praise, glory, and pleasure of God.
7.  Work becomes worship when you dedicate it to God and perform it with an awareness of His presence.

Point to Ponder:  I was planned for God's pleasure
Verse to Remember:  "The Lord takes pleasure in his people." Psalm 149:4
Question to Consider:  What common task could I start doing as if I were doing it directly for Jesus?
