Pure worship is pure humility which is complete openness to God. Through this alone God fills us with his fullness, full and overflowing – always.
Apart from pure worship we close our self both to God and our self, which then renders impossible the loving, life-sustaining richness that only an intimate relationship with him provides.
Worshipping God opens our heart to him – completely – through which, he provides the purest relational flow of love between himself and us at the highest and deepest levels – a love so powerful, it unbreakably binds us to our fellow believers (regardless of ethnic, cultural, or personal differences) and infiltrates the very hearts of those who hate him.
Apart from worshipping God, we cannot subdue our pride through God’s Holy Spirit-given powerful humility. Worshipping God renders impossible rejecting him in any way: whether as sin against him personally, against another person, or as sin against our very self. When we are in the act of worshipping God, it is impossible not to be at one with him, to yearn for him, cry out for him, obey him – to die for him, and each other.
Worshipping God is the one thing that destroys all self-made barriers between us and him. It is our means to recognize him as our sole, sovereign provider – for everything, including our self. It is our means to unite with his relational flow of crescendoing powerful love, transforming us from the unfathomable depths of our soul to the indescribable heights of our spirit.
We worship God for one reason: to live and transform by and within the very Author of Life, the Destroyer of Death; God our Father, God the Messiah and Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit – our comforter and teacher, God’s living presence, his personal manifestation of himself in us.
We worship God for one reason – to live!
