Worship is response.
When the conscience has been awakened
to the stark contrast between who God is
and who I am
despair and avoidance are options.
Seeking to appease God is an option too.
So we may be tempted to strike up a deal
and try to make things “even with God.”
Thus we have religion. Thus we have denial.
Who thought we could really achieve our way?
When our vision of God is informed
by God’s grace through Jesus
we have praise.
6So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. 7He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. Ephesians 1:6-7 NLT
Praise is a joyful response
for who He is,
for what He has done.
So praise Him!
