A_W_TozerI have been reading a book on worship by A. W. Tozer lately and I came across a quote that really challenged me. He was talking about how consumer-oriented we tend to become concerning worship. If we like the songs or if the message really connected with us, we equate that with “good” worship. But worship is not an event. It is not a moment. It is not an experience. It is a lifestyle.

Tozer stated that “if you do not worship God seven days a week, you do not worship Him on one day a week. There is no such thing known in heaven as Sunday worship unless it is accompanied by Monday worship and Tuesday worship and so on.”

Our goal in providing worship environments is not that you begin to rely on that time to encounter God, but those moments propel you to worship God through your life all week long. And so when we do come together, it is a celebration of all we have witnessed Him do all week long.

So as you read this, worship. Connect your heart with our precious Father’s and begin to tell Him how great He is. Tell Him you don’t know where you would be without Him. Tell Him He is the best. He truly deserves our worship.
