    Worship

    October 10, 2020

     

    There is a great little chorus by Bruce Ballinger that goes like this,  “We have come into His house and gathered in His name to worship Him.  We have come into His house and gathered in His name to worship Him.  We have come into His house and gathered in His name to worship Christ the Lord.  Worship Him, Christ the Lord.”    

    The word “worship” runs through the Bible.  What is worship?  Is it just a matter of attending church on Sunday, singing a few songs, having prayer, putting the Lord’s tithe in the plate and listening to another sermon? 

    Certainly, these are “acts” of worship, but you can do all these “acts” and still not truly worship.  Only when we see the Lord “in the beauty of holiness” as the psalmist penned in Psalm 96: 9, can we truly worship.  What did the psalmist mean?  Worship doesn’t begin when we go to church.  Worship is an expression of our life, yielding it wholly, in holiness to God for the fulfillment of His purpose - to glorify Him - that is worship!

    When we see Him as He is, “in the beauty of holiness” we cannot help but fall to our knees and cry out “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” (Isaiah 6: 3)  and agree with the angelic host “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.”         

    (Revelation 4:11)   Every manifestation of God is full of beauty. You and I join the angels, and all of nature in worship, when we are what He created us to be - “His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus.” 

    (cf. Ephesians 2:10)

    So, as that little chorus continues, “Let’s forget about ourselves and magnify His name and worship Him!”

    In Christ Alone,

    Pastor Rodney
