Worship

“Come, let us worship and bow down.  Let us kneel before the Lord our maker,” Psalm 95:6 (NLT)

Dale and I recently watched the documentary of The Jesus Music. It began with the birth of Christian music, which started about the time we became born again Christians. The 70’s with the Jesus Movement which flowed into Japan, brought by Christians from southern California. It was a great time, with great music and great excitement.

While watching this, Dale and I smiled and talked about the artists and their music. We had memories for a lot of what was being talked about.

Interspersed in the interviews were bits of songs. Songs that have ministered to me and renewed me, have given me strength and courage.

I came away thinking of worship of our God. Worship is an act of honoring and glorifying God. It is a time to literally fall on our faces in adoration. Too often we go to church we sing the songs and we leave. We do not allow the words to penetrate our souls. We do not think of the meaning of worship. God created music. He spoke music into our lives. It is deeply embedded in us. It is a natural response to our Creator.

We often play worship music in the background, it calms me, speaks to me and keeps my mind on Whose I am.

Michael W. Smith has a song that expresses my heart and worship, “Heart of Worship” The words of the chorus are: “I’m coming back to the heart of worship And it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus
I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus”

Our lives are truly all about Jesus.
