And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
Christian churches have come to the dangerous time predicted long ago. It is a time when we can pat one another on the back, congratulate ourselves and join in the glad refrain, “We are rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing!”
It certainly is true that hardly anything is missing from our churches these days—except the most important thing. We are missing the genuine and sacred offering of ourselves and our worship to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ….
We have been surging forward. We are building great churches and large congregations. We are boasting about high standards and we are talking a lot about revival.
But I have a question and it is not just rhetoric: What has happened to our worship?…
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.” WHT009-010, 020
Lord, “I want to be among those who worship.” I’ve been guilty at times of going through the motions, and I pray that today You might fill me with a brand new sense of genuine worship. Amen.
