    What happens when we Worship?

    Post by PastorDan on Thu Sep 01, 2016 9:17 pm

    The story is told of how Christianity was introduced to Russia. More than 1,000 years ago Grand Duke Vladimir of Kiev was interested in selecting an appropriate religion for his new nation. His emissaries investigated the main religions of the day, including Roman Catholicism and Islam. But it was only after visiting the chief site of the Orthodox Church in Constantinople that they found what they were looking for. In their report to their duke, the emissaries noted that in Orthodox worship there was such solemn splendor that they had a hard time knowing whether they were in heaven or on earth.

    Worship is something that God gave us so that He could share his holiness with us. Think about that, God who is absolutely holy has created a way for us to express our thanks and praise. It's amazing because "holiness" is 100% intolerant of imperfection, and yet we show up to worship in all our imperfection... yet God does not turn us away, He welcomes us!

    And so we must endeavor to Worship in the way God has instructed. In a nutshell, Christian Worship is comprised of the following:

    • Songs of worship, praise, and thanksgiving
    • God's Word (The Bible) as the guiding source
    • God's "means of grace" (Baptism and Communion)
    • Prayers of adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication


    A quick review of that list reveals that what is happening in worship is that the individual is joined with others in a congregation where God is truly present to forgive, inspire, and feed... indeed to save.
