This month, my boyfriend decided to turn his college ministry, Scope, into a worship service gathering that meets once a week. We've only had three meetings, but so far, they've been amazing. Despite the small amount of people that have showed up.
Why did he decide to make Scope into a worship gathering? Because, worship is the time when we are changed drastically. It's when we set our eyes on God, forgetting what's around. It's when our spiritual eyes are open, when it's just you and your Father. You can't experience his presence and deny that His existence, nor can youjust "imagine" his presence, his healing love, his overwhelming sense of peace. Because it's nothing of this world.
One of my favorite verses on worship is Psalm 84:10~
"Better is one day in your courts than a thousands elsewhere."
This message translation gives a good visual of this verse, stating that~
"One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches."
It's during then, during that time of worship when we realize just how tiny our life here on earth is, and how it's not and never was about us but entirely for Him.In his presence is when we receive strength to face each day. And it should not be just a once-a-week thing, but every moment of every day we should be worshipping our Father, studying His Word, and living our life to reflect His glory.
We experience oneness with our Father, a spiritual cleansing and renewing, the moment we allow him to take over during worship.
