Get Your Worship On

My wife, Jeni, and I just returned from an extended celebration of our 30th anniversary. We drove more than 2800 miles over 12 days, visiting family and friends on our way to and from Maine. Neither of us had ever been there and many people had told us how beautiful it is, especially in summer.

On the way to our first stop in Maine, the beautiful Lake Cobbosseecontee, I was hitting the “seek” button on the radio in search of something interesting to listen to. It landed on a gospel song which contained the lyric “Get your worship on.” I regret that I don’t know the recording artist. The phrase made me smile and somehow resonated with me, but in an unspecific way.

When we arrived at the lake during the afternoon of a picture perfect day, I experienced what it was to get my worship on. The sun was warm, the breeze cool, the scenery beautiful, and the water perfect for a brisk swim to the dock about 50 yards out into the water. Later, the sunset over the lake was breath-taking. I could only marvel and praise the Lord for the natural beauty of that place.

Over the ensuing days in Maine, I got my worship on by praising God over and over again because of the many beautiful locations we visited. The zenith was reached in Acadia National Park. Again, we were blessed with perfect weather. All day long, wherever we went in the park, the next view was more stunning than the previous one. Oh, how He must love us! And oh, how I pray we will be excellent stewards of His creation, that these places can be preserved for all to experience.

As The WordPlayers is set to begin the 2013-14 season, I am reminded of Colossians 3:23 (NIV): “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” I think that means that as we participate in this gift of theatre, we need to get our worship on!

It is right to worship God and acknowledge Him and His hand in all creation, (Psalm 30:12 (NKJV) To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.) (Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,) (Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.)

The problem i have with this statement (get your worship on) gives the connotation that, like a piece of clothing, we can get our worship on when we feel like it. Unfortunately, much of the church today has this attitude with their worship. just like their Sunday best, they “put it on” on the Lord’s Day, but have no signs of faith throuout the week. Worship and praise should be a continual thought asnd desire of our heart 24-7. (Hebrews 13:15
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.)

Be strong my brothers, God is always with us, so our hearts should always be inclined to Him. Joshua 1:8-9 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
