Warning. This is a political topic. Take heart. This is not a political rant. Stay with me.
Tuesday, Attorney General Barr went before a House committee for a hearing. Both red and blue congressmen and congresswomen got their say in, and they all said a lot. Prewritten speeches, twisted questions, political slams, and direct innuendoes. (Yeah, that last one doesn’t make much sense, but neither does calling what happened today a hearing.)
Here is my humorous insight. One of the coolest moments was when, after numerous questions were asked of Barr and much talking over any attempts which Barr was making in answering or responding to said questions, Barr made an insightful statement …
This is a hearing. I thought I was the one who was supposed to be heard.William Barr
Don’t get mad at me, but I think Barr was genius. And for me, the lesson was not really about Washington politics but about worship.
Think about it. We call it worship and that’s what it should be about … worship. We are to be worshipping God. Praising Him, learning from Him, talking and singing about Him, praying together to Him. Do you get it? … it’s about Him. And by Him, I mean Jesus.
But we get more concerned about music style, or our comfort, or if people are wearing/not-wearing masks, or the noise level, or kids being restless, or the pastor preaches-looks-talks-breaths funny. We want our comfort, our preferences, our music, and our ways … not to say our seat. Don’t even think about letting someone else sit in our seat.
Let’s reword the earlier quote …
This is worship. I thought I was the one who was supposed to be worshipped.Jesus
Worship is our praise and service to Him … but also our time to hear from Him.
So this coming Sunday, go to worship somewhere (if you can) and make it all about Him. He is the only one worthy of our worship, wouldn’t you agree? Give Him the hour.
It’s all about You Jesus.
