As I’ve been meditating on Worship, and just what it is exactly, I received the following weekly devotional email from Tony Evans, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Tx. It was appropriate to this discussion so here it is:
Mr. Evans points out that worship lifts us up emotionally. This is true, but if we worship for this reason only, we worship for the wrong reason. Worship isn’t about us only, it’s about GOD. Mr. Evans is simply pointing out that even though it is designed to bring GOD benefit, it also by inherent design, brings us benefit as well. Not when we are doing it for our sake, but when we do it for the LORD’s sake, because He alone is worthy of worship. He alone is worthy of praise! So may the LORD be glorified and your spirit uplifted as you worship the LORD today, tomorrow, and always!
