Just thinking...

Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!" John 20:28

That passage along with looking at Elijah and the prophets of Baal started me thinking about the whole worship experience.

Rarely in our culture do we come before the Father in that order, obedience and then worship.

Don’t we come expecting to get something out of worship? Think about it, how many times have you heard “I really didn’t get anything out of the worship today”.

We shouldn’t seek a worship experience, it should be something we do regardless of how we feel about it; the experience should develop out of the obedience and worship.

Worship (“my God”) should be the act of obedience (“my Lord”) to who God is.

Elijah prayed “O Lord, God of Abraham, Issac, and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all the things you have commanded…then the fire fell. 1 Kings 18:36, 38

Just thinking…

What a great thought....such a great reminder that our purpose should be to respond to who God is and not to respond based on how we feel...great stuff!
