But if we walk in the light as He is in the light we have fellowship with one another … 1Jn 1:7 Worshipping together is the beginning of walking together. When we begin to walk together in the light of Jesus he opens the door of fellowship (communhao) That is we are walking into God’s community. Worship is not alone on a mountain, but is aone part of entering into God’s family. The deeper our worship and fellowship in the light of Jesus, the deeper and purer our fellowship with God’s family. Let’s leave behind the safeness of our aloneness and enter together into God’s presence.Worship is not safe because in the arms of Jesus we meet everyone else He is holding!!
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 Jn 1:7
When I was a teenager I loved nothing better than sleeping outside in the Summer. I would love to watch the sky as morning came closer. One by one the stars disappeared from the sky and the black night sky lightened to grey and then blue. Just before the sun peeked up from the hills there was still just one star left shining. Worship and walking with God is like this. When His light shines in the night sky of our lives and all we know fades into the brightness of His presence.Then there is just one star left and that is Jesus..the bright morning star. Let’s just ask ourselves this morning. Is my love for Jesus burning brighter in my life today? Then God will tenderly draw us together into His presence and clean our hearts by the precious blood.
True worshippers are not a certain kind of people but people who worship in Spirit and in Truth. The truth of worship is that when we come into God’s presence man made barriers are destroyed and we become a single new people who speak our Father’s language and have new citizenship papers in a new country!! As leaders we first must see the road that leads to God’s presence because we can never lead in a direction we are not walking!!
