Worship: The Human Response to the Divine Initiative

May 30, 2015

The discipline of worship, the positive human response to God’s action, is really at the heart of being human. God is Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Restorer, and the One who enables all good. In the fall of Lucifer, in the fall of Adam and Eve and in the fall of us today, there is a connection to worship. When we give God attention and praise all by ourselves, that can be a very good moment of connection, of thinking about God without mentioning ourselves. And then when we practice this in the corporate setting, we may encounter God in a way that gives us a foretaste of heaven.
