A Way of Life

Thought For The Week 141

People reaching out

One of the most succinct and challenging statements I have ever found regarding this is from the writings of A.W. Tozer who declares, “True worship seeks union with its beloved, and an active effort to close the gap between the heart and the God it adores is worship at its best.”  How do we ‘close the gap’?  How much of our regular, everyday life can be given over to worship?  Is it possible to live a life of consistent worship?

Yahshua told us that Yahweh is actively seeking worshippers, even going so far as to describe the type of people He is looking for.  To an unnamed Samaritan woman who gave Him a drink of water at a well-side, Yahshua said, “…true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.” [John 4:23] This indicated a new and different order, opening up a fresh way of worship, for the old way had served its purpose by pointing us to the Messiah.

We worship what we adore; adoration begins with contact and relationship; it grows with increasing knowledge. I cannot worship Yahweh if I don’t know Him. To study the Word is to begin to know Him, to begin to be filled with awe and love; Yahweh, we learn, is holy, eternal, omnipotent, merciful, righteous; He is just and He is terrible.  How well do I know Him? Do you?  He is looking for true worshippers; I have come to believe that worship is a way of life.

[Yahweh] always does what is good for us. If you believe that he gave his own Son for you, this is what you believe. And all of the Christian life is simply the fruit of that faith. Look to [Yahshua]. Look to the love of [Yahweh]. Live in love. And fear no more.
