Scripture Of The Week

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.  Ps. 51:15

It is interesting to watch people at various venues.  For example, football fans go all out at football games, wearing their team colors, painting their faces and bodies with team colors and roar as a unit at a touchdown.  At music concerts, devoted fans raise their hands and swoon at rock stars.  Supporters clap, cheer and throw confetti for their favorite politicians at political rallies.

But what about worship?  Why shouldn’t Christians unite hearts, souls and minds, raise voices and cheer for the lover of souls, the giver of good things, the creator of the universe, the all-powerful glorious one, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end?

King David was eager to worship.   He said:  “I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’” (Psalm 122:1).  And he had so much enthusiasm, dancing before the Lord when the ark returned to Jerusalem, that his wife was embarrassed by his behavior (2 Samuel 6:14-16).

Football games and concerts are, indeed, fun.  Political events are important to a candidate’s success.  But a bigger priority is to worship God.  Why not praise Him with the enthusiasm of a Super Bowl fan, the adoration of a music enthusiast, and the zeal of a political supporter?  Lets show our culture Who is really worthy of our adoration and praise.
