I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. —Psalm 122:1
What are we going to do about this awesome, beautiful worship that God calls for? I would rather worship God than do any other thing I know of in all this wide world….
I cannot speak for you, but I want to be among those who worship. I do not want just to be a part of some great ecclesiastical machine where the pastor turns the crank and the machine runs. You know—the pastor loves everybody and everybody loves him. He has to do it. He is paid to do it.
I wish that we might get back to worship again. Then when people come into the church they will instantly sense that they have come among holy people, God’s people. They can testify, “Of a truth God is in this place.”
Lord, I pray that Your Church would discover a renewed passion for worship, that we would become a people who make Your presence known through our very actions, attitudes and presence in the world. Amen.
