Church family,

What a beautiful week! I trust you have had the chance to enjoy these amazing spring days!

I was outside with a friend the other day and I remarked, “What a day to worship God!”

I must admit, we were on a golf course. I can assure you we were not worshiping our golf game, but the God who created the beauty of the earth! The flowering trees, the deep green grass, and the warm air. The birds flying and singing, the leaves on the trees getting ready to burst! What an amazingly creative God we have! Psalm 19 came to mind as we worshiped our Creator God:

Psalm 19:1-6 (ESV) The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

In recent years, the music of the church has been often referred to as simply, ‘worship’. You know, we’ve often heard, “The worship was great. I loved the worship.” or “The worship wasn’t my favorite this morning.” These expressions often ‘hint’ of a person who worships their preference or is worshiping the music.

Let me remind each of us that worship is an everyday, every moment posture. We are always worshiping something. As a child of God, our life should grow in the worship of God. That growth comes from our deepening understanding of who He is.

As we go through each day, may our worship of God grow and deepen as we learn and become more aware of His greatness! May your yard work, grocery shopping, interaction with others, and ALL that you do be with an attitude and awareness of the awesome God we serve!

Walking with you,

Pastor Brian
