“You groped your way through that murk once, but no longer. You’re out in the open now. The bright light of Christ makes your way plain. So no more stumbling around. Get on with it! The good, the right, the true—these are the actions appropriate for daylight hours. Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it.”
Ephesians 5:8-10 MSG
How many times do we come to the presence of our Father and all we do is stroke our egos, make ourselves feel good, enjoy the music or message without pleasing the One whom we have come for? Do we even realize that the reason for worship is to please Him? Do we know that the purpose of our lives is to p,ease Him? To find what pleases Him and just do it? The lyrics of the song Heart of Worship says it all
When the music fades,
all is striped away and I simply come,
longing just to bring something that’s of worth,
that will bless Your heart.
I’ll bring You more than a song,
for a song in itself is not what You have required.
You search much deeper within through the way things appear,
You’re looking into my heart.”
“I’m coming back to the heart of worship and it’s all about You,
it’s all about You, Jesus.”
when we come to Him to please Him and Him only, when all that matters is that He smiles in satisfaction when He sees or hears from us, when every other thing is put in the background and we simply come, He pours Himself into us and our lives never remain the same!
I’m coming back to the heart of worship and it’s all about You Jesus!
