Connected to God through worship.

The Bible calls us to worship!

Psalm 8:1 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.

Psalm 29:2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.

Psalm 95:6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

Psalm 99:5 Exalt the Lord our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he!

Jesus said in John 4:23, 24, “The hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

With so many passages in God’s Word calling us to worship that must mean we are created to worship.

True worship connects us to God. When we approach God with hearts wide open His presence invades our life. When we gather together to worship His presence permeates the place.

We live in a connected culture. We are connected to world wide news 24 hours a day. We are connect to friends through Facebook. The world is available at our fingertips on our smartphones. There is no doubt we are more connected than ever before.  But connected to what? And what are these connections producing in our lives?

Let’s connect to God this weekend through worship. I have a feeling this connection will produce the rich, satisfying, full, good, abundant life God has promised us.
