Musing the worship of God …

20140724-082145-30105673.jpgWhat is right worship? At the end of today’s Gospel, those in the boat paid homage to Christ after he saved Peter from drowning in his attempt to walk on water. We see the worship of our Blessed Lord when the Magi came to adore him. Peter, James, and John ascended the Mount Tabor and desired to build three tents for our Lord, Moses, and Elijah as they beheld him in his glory.

I’ve struggled to understand how people worship. On the exterior, it seems that many have fallen victim to culture religious expression, to do something that makes them feel good about themselves. Young people today find worship to be irrelevant because it doesn’t do anything for them.

Worship – a deliberate pursuit and surrender to Almighty God. Re-evaluate … are we deliberately pursuing God, offering him our entire hearts or are we only fitting him into one hour in our weekly busy lives. Peter cried, “Lord if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” Similarly, we must cry, “Increase our faith.” Such a request comes stirred by the gift of the Holy Spirit. May that Spirit refresh and renew the inner parts of our lives that desperately need God.

  1. Love this: “Young people today find worship to be irrelevant because it doesn’t do anything for them.” Unfortunately, too many of us think worship is about “feeling” something. However, during worship our focus should not be inward on how we feel, but outward and directed towards God.
