How many times we use the word worhip to describe something that is at best only a part of God’s idea of worship. We are thinking of music or of a “worship service”. We use up so much of our energies debating about the form or the style that we use when we are singing together in church. Jesus is with us but we see only the words of the song, the way that the music is played or how things look up on the altar.
When the Bible shows us worship we find moments of faith. Worship is when faith sees clearly through the window of heaven into the face of God. At those times Jesus comes and asks, “Why did you doubt?” Though we have been in stormy seas, He has never left. Though we have slipped and begun to sink beneath the waves, He has pulled us up to Himself again. In one crystal clear moment we recognize in the deepest part of our soul, ‘He really is the Son of God’ ! That is when we fall down again before him wherever we are and in the middle of whatever we are doing and worship Him again. There is no one like our Jesus!
Matthew 14:31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
