"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:1-5
We know that we were created by God, like God, and for God. We were created to worship Him. God became flesh in the form of His Son, Jesus. Our focus in worship is Jesus! Everything we do in worship and evangelism must be centered on Jesus. John 1:14 says, "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." Our worship should come from a heart that is blown away in the fact that the Creator would want to come to us despite our sinful condition. There was no way for the created (us) to connect with the Creator on our own. The Creator had to and has to establish the connection. The connection is Jesus, God in flesh! In the book, Worship and Witness, David Wheeler and Vernon Whaley said, "Great Commission worship is the proper response to who Jesus is and everything He has done on our behalf. No other message is more important for us to share, and no other person is more worthy of our praise." Let's make every effort today to focus on Jesus in everything we say and do! Our focus in worship is Jesus!
