The Wonder of Worship

Nature, God's Word, prayer, and Christian fellowship help me to know that there is a God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. There are two experiences, though, more than anything else, that help me to know beyond all doubt that God does indeed exist. Those two experiences are:

1. I received Christ as my Savior when I was a boy. When Jesus came into my heart my whole world and my outlook on life completely changed. It was an experience like no other. That day I knew that I knew that God exists.

2. The second experience is one that I can avail myself of at almost any time. It is worship, taking time to be in the presence of God. There is nothing that can compare with worship. It absolutely makes me know that God is real.

Judson Cornwall writes, "The emotions of man do not constitute the true essence of worship. Rather, it is the renewed relationship with God that forms the basis of our loving response to God. . . .The true essence of worship is when His Spirit bears witness with our spirit, triggering the human spirit to respond in love and adoration to God Almighty" (From Let Us Worship by Judson Cornwall.)

That's a good definition, and it's the reason we were created in the first place. God seeks true worshipers who will draw near to Him and breathe His presence deep within. Such intimacy with God is life's greatest treasure. It is the best experience we could ever have.

Have you ever soaked in God's presence? He is waiting for you. To go into God's presence is to go into His Most Holy Place--the secret place where He reveals himself to you. He is waiting for you to enter, so you can enjoy His presence, His love, His peace, and His joy.

Worship belongs to Him. He is worthy of all worship and praise. It is time to spend time alone with Him.
