Gathering in Worship

 

Connecting to God is the essence of worship. God wants us to know him. He sent his Savior into our world to make a connection to us. Our response to him in adoration completes the connection.

Jesus said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength." (Mark 12:30, Deut. 6:4, 5) Worship is loving God. God wants us to love him completely, with our whole being. We do best not to limit worship to a style of music.

When Moses worshiped God at Sinai, he fell down and worshiped God (Exodus 34:7). Nothing is said about music when Moses worshiped. Instead, worship occurred because Moses thought nothing of his own life in acknowledging the presence of God. We do well to learn from this example of worship.

Worship styles speak to the interest of the worshiper, more than addressing God's presence. We should recognize that God has given us music in all its styles. At First Baptist, Cuero, we use a variety of styles of music to express our praise of God. Every instrument and every style is a tool God has allowed us to use to celebrate God’s grace.
