The church is built upon revelation. And it’s revelation that give us keys to the kingdom and with these keys we have the power to bind and to loose some things. Some people spend so much time binding and never realize that they have an equal opportunity to loose some things. God is a multifaceted God, so the longer that you walk with God the more you should find out about God. This is why God never becomes boring. Ritualism can become boring, you can become boring, church can become boring, but if your walking with God in a relationship you’ll find out that he is full of surprises.
God is not an equation to be figured out, He is a God to be experienced. One thing that we must understand about God being experienced is that He can’t be experienced where He is not discerned as being present. You cannot worship God if you think He’s on His way or will be here in the near future. He must be discerned as being present.
We all understand that God is everywhere, but to worship Him you cannot just believe that He is everywhere. You must believe that He is here. Worshiping God is about getting God into our present moment. Worship is not the music that we play or something that we do while we wait on the late people to make their fashionable arrival. Worship is a responsibility that we must as individuals take ownership of, because it is impossible for someone else to worship God for me and after all this is what we were created for anyway.
Before I sign off today and get carried away typing about worship, which I could surely continue for sometime. I feel compelled to share a story that relates to worship.
During the 1976 Winter Olympics Dorthy Hamill was in the middle of one of her figure skating routines when suddenly the music stopped. The crowd looked eagerly to see exactly what Dorthy’s response would be during this unfortunate happening. As they watched intently they noticed something that they were least expecting and that was she continued skating. Her routine wasn’t about the music, but what was in her heart.
This is really what the whole idea of worship comes down to. And I assume we find out if it’s really in our hearts if we can keep skating after the music.
Have a blessed day!
