John 4: 23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in Spirit and in truth.
Don’t we always wonder why it is that the church pews are full on Christmas and on Easter. I have actually heard these worshippers called “Chreasters”. Why do individuals feel those days are the only important Sundays to worship and not each of the other 50 weeks of the year? And yet, I thank the Lord for their sporadic attendance in hopes that they might make a decision to come on one of the between weeks. Weekly worship is our practice - why do we value worshipping weekly?
As I was scrolling through my Facebook the other day, I saw this message that might answer this question. The message said “Worship will get you through the ROUGHEST TIMES in your life, because it shifts your focus from the problem to the problem solver.” Wow, what a powerful statement.
So, as we worship together next week, let us remember that our focus is on the problem solver and He will be there for us to help us with any problem that we identify. This is the message we must strive to share with the Chreasters.
Prayer: Dear Lord, your eye is always watching us and your heart is always loving us. Be with us as our problem solver and may we always focus on you as we worship in your name. Amen.
