from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

The Moment of Worship

A recent post on blog.worship.com reviewing the book Preventing Ministry Failure, by Michael Todd Wilson and Brad Hoffmann (IVP, 2007) quoted the following passage that sounded like a good description/definition of the worship experience.

“Worship is a moment in time when we cease being influenced by anyone or anything but God. It’s never about the worshiper but about the One being worshiped. Genuine worship invites freedom and intimacy, and isn’t dictated by traditions, rules, or expectations–even when traditions are enjoyed within the context of worship. Rather, it’s the enjoyment and celebration of the presence of God. The by-product of worship is a renewed spirit.”
I will use this to check my own focus and attitude especially during corporate worship when distractions are numerous.
