I’m preparing a sermon on Psalm 100, and in so doing have been reminded of what worship could be (as opposed to what it so often is, as described recently by Mr. Campton!).
So picture this, worship in the style of Psalm 100:
I imagine a vibrant, warm, energetic crowd of people, tumbling into the sanctuary, delighted to be there. This is all about the LORD. There is a hush as together we recall that the one who created us also loves us and sustains us – resulting in a spontaneous eruption of thankful hearts expressing their praise and adoration. A final moment of stillness occurs as we contemplate God’s goodness, love and faithfulness – to us and to all who will come after us.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
