Re: Verse reading–Isaiah 6:1-8; Revelation 4:1-11 (Day Five)
What is it about God that compels or “draws” you into worship? As we read the Re: Verse passages this week we see several possibilities: His Holiness, His Purity, His Sovereignty, His Beauty, His Kindness, His Graciousness, His Generosity, His Strength. William Temple says worship is to “quicken the conscience by the holiness of God, to feed the mind with the truth of God, to open the heart to the love of God, to devote the will to the purpose of God.” Opportunities are available because the scripture says that God “seeks” worshipers (John 4). Personal Worship, Corporate Worship, and Small Group Worship all present moments and experiences to see and hear from the Lord. Worship begins with a holy anticipation and ends in holy obedience (becoming more like Christ)- the point and goal of each spiritual discipline we’ve studied this summer.
