Light of the World #2

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice… His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory. –Psalm 97:1, 4-6

Nothing lights up the night sky like a lightning storm. Flashes of energy so powerful they can wake you from sleep. But they are nothing compared to the power and energy of the one who created lightning.

Our lives are nothing without the light and power of God. This must be reflected in our worship. And as silly and basic as it may sound, God must be a part of our worship. Do we ever just put on a worship CD because we like the songs, or are we purposefully trying to focus on God?

Don’t get me wrong – I think listening to music because it’s good is ok, but lets not fool ourselves into thinking that just because we’re listening, even singing worship music, that we are worshipping God.
