I want you to learn and grow in worship to our Lord.
1984. In a forest preserve outside Lansing, Michigan. When I was assured that no one was looking, I raised both my hands high over my head. And I worshiped God.
This was the beginning of something new. I was learning more about worship. I am an ever-growing student, and Jesus is my all-wise Teacher.
I had already been a worshiper for fourteen years. I experienced joy as I sang new songs to the Lord. Often, especially when alone, my joy flowed in tears. I learned that, not only was it OK to cry before the Lord, but my joy was a vessel that contained worship.
Worship is a lifelong learning experience.
Real worship springs from the spirit, and expresses truth. Disciples of Jesus learn to worship in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
Today is the day when authentic worshipers are being released, across the world. I am one of them.
So are you.
Remember - It’s all going to end in worship.
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude,
like the roar of rushing waters
and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
I am a true worshiper of Christ.
Sometimes I break out in spontaneous worship.
My spirit overflows in worship.
My worship today is preparing me for an eternity of worship.
When I think of all Christ has done for me, worship expands my spirit.
