Morning Worship

Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and it is he who is speaking to you.”  He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him. John 9:37-38 ESV

Discipleship of grace begins by faith – but it will only grow as we worship. One pitfall in our modern church is that we are so comfortable that we end up connecting worship in our minds to a hushed mood, a moment in the performance and a time to settle back into our comfortable seats.

But in the Bible we see Moses worshipped bare foot in the desert by a burning bush. We see Elijah wKIMG0642orshipping God at a stone altar even when the crowd was loving the 400 man worship team at the 1st church of Baal. David worshiped while he watched sheep and Daniel worshiped in the lion’s den. All of these people were worshiping because they had met by an awesome God and they wanted Him to get all the glory, no matter what the circumstances.


Dial it forward to Jesus meeting the blind man in John chapter nine. First, He became His healer. Later after no one else could accept him, Jesus became His friend. Finally when Jesus showed the man who He really was He could do nothing less than worship. Before we can walk down the road with Jesus or gives us something more to do we must learn what it means to truly worship Him. No ministry is more important, no goal so vital, no relationship so precious that it can stand in the way of our worship. We will know that He is worthy and worth more than all we have to give, when we begin to uncover the truth of who He really is!

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.
