Worship Is

worshipnotyouIt’s Sunday. I’ve been reminded this past week of the truth stated above. Worship is NOT about me. Worship is not about

  • my likes or dislikes

  • my unfinished “to do” list that runs through my mind (oh so guilty of this one!)

  • my desire to stay in my comfy bed on a weekend morning

  • my concerns over a daunting task that awaits me later this week

  • the person sitting next to me or three rows back

Worship IS for the sole purpose of recognizing the One who deserves all my praise. He is the audience, I am not.

 

Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.  Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.  For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens.  Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place.  Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength,  ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come before him; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.  Tremble before him, all the earth! The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.  Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”

1 Chronicles 16:23-31
