Upside Down Devotion

Author: Taylor Field

Description: Unless we are standing for those in need, we have missed what pleases God. “He despises our worship and finds it disgusting,” author Taylor Field writes. Upside-down devotion takes a probing and thought-provoking look at the scriptural concept of devotion and worship. Not worship as we normally think of it on Sunday morning but rather the biblical principles of worship expressed through tangible means to those in trouble. When extreme action for your remarkable God is fueled by a passion to serve in His name, this fresh narrative will compel you to show your desire for Him through your do-votion.
