Sunday, January 6
One of the directions we move in as a church is towards worshipping Jesus. We do this in many ways, but the way we specifically mean it in this context is by coming together and declaring that God is worth our worship by singing together.
Scripture: Acts 16:25-26
“About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the jail were shaken, and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains came loose. -- Acts 16:25-26 (CSB)”
In this scripture we see the power of worship. Regardless of our circumstances God is good and he deserves our praise. Oftentimes worship is a product of “feeling like it” or because our circumstances in life lead us to sing. Our circumstances and those feelings we experience change because we worship in the midst of any season and any circumstance. Whether we feel it or not, we worship because we believe that a result of our worship could be actually experiencing the freedom that’s waiting for us. What chains would “come loose” for you if you let loose in worship?
God by your power remove the inhibition that keeps us from worshiping you. Allow us to see that the door to whatever “prison” we might be living in is already open and we just have to walk through it. We worship because we’re grateful and we worship because you’re worth it.
