Seeking worshippers

RE Verse reading–Psalm 34 (day seven)  “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.”  (vs 3)  Praise to God is not a choice that should be left to individual choice or mood.  Having overcome his own saddness (see 1 Samuel 22) David begins to enlist others to the life-giving privilege of praise.  Psalm 34 is a song.  A song of evangelism.  A song of enlistment.  A song sung to his men.  Are we compelled in similar fashion?  If others do not praise God, do we encourage them to join us?  Secular culture treats faith as a matter of privacy.  In many ways, some subtle, some not, it argues that believers should be silent and non-intrusive toward people who do not praise God.  David disagress.  So does Jesus.  “true worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for such people the Father SEEKS to be His worshippers.” (John 4:23)  God seeks people to worship.  He extends an invitation.  Do we?
