Worship as God defines it

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.  Colossians 3:16

I have thought over and over today about that word of Christ dwelling richly. I saw that It doesn’t say “Let the Rich Word” dwell in you. No, God is knocking and asking that His simple, plain, and unmixed word would have access to all my resources. That is how God defines worship. Does He have complete access to all of my resources: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Image

Or in another way of seeing the picture: Am I am opening up to God the unlimited horizons of all that is in me? Can He look to the East, to the West, to the North and to the South, as far as His eye can see, and know that it all belongs to Him?

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
