Worship, Worship, Worship by Shannon Moore
February is the month we focus on:
Worshipas an Element of our Faith.
I hope that you will pay close attention to everything that happens during your time at church on Sunday morning, and work toward making worship an action, not a thing.
Worship is a VERB, not a noun
As you sing the songs (perhaps songs you don’t know or like), pay attention to the words as an offering or a prayer to God. During the prayer, don’t tune out. Listen to the words of the speaker and use those words to help you speak silently to God. When you hear the words of scripture and the words of the sermon, take them in. Make them part of who you are, and offer yourself back to God. As you take the bread and cup, reflect on just how much God loves us.
After the service is over, take what you did inside the church, and do those same things in your life! Whenever you eat, make it a time of communion. Whenever you sing (even secular songs), look for God in the lyrics. When you wash the dishes or mow the lawn, make it an act of worship!
William Barclay said "The true, the genuine worship is when man, through his spirit, attains to friendship and intimacy with God. True and genuine worship is not to come to a certain place; it is not to go through a certain ritual or liturgy; it is not to even bring certain gifts. True worship is when the spirit, the immortal and invisible part of man, speaks to and meets with God, who is immortal and invisible."
Make worship your life; Make your life worship.
The Neighborhood Agape Meal is a combination of worship and mission, centering around a delicious family-style meal enjoyed by our homeless neighbors and our members who volunteer to serve the dinner. Worship allows all present to sing, pray for each other, share talents and gifts, hear the Word of God and partake in weekly communion.
Central Christian Church participates in the serving at the Agape Meal on each 2nd Thursday of the month, leaving the church at 5:00 pm & returning about 7:15 pm. Contact Robert Goodrich if you would like to be a part of this great outreach ministry!
