Reflections on Worship
As I write this...I am thinking...tomorrow is the day. It will be Sunday. Not just any-old Sunday, but a one-and-only Sunday. It is a day that will never come around again. We can look back, remember, smile, frown, regret, or rejoice in the memory, but it will never be ours to experience again. Sunday!
Each day of our lives holds the same reality but this one is different. It is the Lord's day. It is a day of worship. It is a day when we will gather in the worship center, sing our praise, share the Scriptures, and pray for one another. It is a unique opportunity, a holy obligation, a day dedicated to God, we can not let it flow into the past without offering our best to God.
This is my prayer...Lord Jesus, help me to know you, worship you, experience your love, and serve you to the best of my ability. Guide us into the reality of your love. Help us to gather in peace and hope. Remind us that your creative image flows through our veins at this very moment. Let us be your people. Allow us the privilege of worshiping you fully and serving you with wisdom. Use our lives, Lord, to transform the world. Help us to make this 'Sunday' truly like no other. Use us, shape us, teach us, love us we pray. Amen
As always...I am looking forward to seeing you very soon.
