Script# 21


Beloved,

Worship is the only indispensable activity of God's people - Biblically, confessionally, historically, and traditionally; and, for those of us in that part of the Kingdom called the PCUSA, constitutionally.

It is what we say and do when we recognize in highest degree who He is, who we are, and what He has done for us and our salvation through Jesus.

God's people hunger and thirst to worship.

Repeat.

God's people hunger and thirst to worship.

Repeat.

God's people hunger and thirst to worship.

And when they/we do, they/we are lost/immersed/healed in wonder, love, and praise.

It's the pulse, power, breathe, and so much, much, much more of life - now and then.

Peterson: "Worship shapes the human community in response to the living God.  If worship is neglected or perverted, our communities fall into chaos or under tyranny."

He goes on, "Our times are not propitious for worship.  The times never are.  The world is hostile to worship.  The Devil hates worship.  As The Revelation makes clear, worship must be carried out under conditions decidedly uncongenial to it."

Come, let us worship God.

Blessings and Love!
