A Heart of Worship

 

              An amazing dynamic occurs when we come to worship with a heart of worship.  Paul told the

 Corinthian church to worship in such a clear way that if an unbeliever entered, “he would find the secrets of his revealed; and so he would fall down on his face and worship God, declaring that God is indeed among you.” (1 Corinthians 14:24-25).

 

              David cited the evangelistic power of honest worship: “He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.  Many people see this and worship him.  Then they will trust the Lord.” (Psalm 40:3).

 

Your heartfelt worship is a missionary appeal.

 

Let unbelievers hear the passion of your voice or see the sincerity in your face, and they may be changed ,

 

Peter was, when Peter saw the worship of Jesus, he said, “Lord, it is good that we are here.  If you want, I will put up three tents here-one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (Matthew 17:4).

 

Mark says Peter spoke out of fear (9.6).  Luke says Peter spoke out of ignorance (9:33).  But

whatever the reason, at least Peter spoke.  He didn’t understand that God wants hearts and not tents, but at least he was moved to give something.

 

Why?  Because he saw the transfigured face of Christ.  The same happens in churches today.  When people see us giving heartfelt praise to God-when they hear our worship-they are intrigued.  They want to see who’s in charge.  Sparks from our fire tend to ignite dry hearts!

 

Seekers may not understand all that happens in a house of worship.  They may not understand the meaning of a song or the significance of Holy Communion, but they know the joy when they see it.  And when they see your face changed, they may want to see God’s face. 

By the way, wouldn’t the opposite be equally true?  What happens when a seeker sees boredom on your face?  Others are worshiping and you are scowling?  Others are in His presence, but you are in your own little world?  Others are seeking God’s face while you are seeking the face of your wrist watch?

 

Do you come to church with a worship-hungry heart?  Our Savior did.”
