Right Where We Are
by Sheila Mills

...and there he worshiped the LORD - Genesis 13:4

There.

Right where Abraham stood, at an altar he had built, there he worshiped the LORD.

With all the media technology available to American churches today, it's easy to get caught up in the production, forgetting such technology is only a tool best left under God's supervision. We tend to overlook worship is not about the musicor the voicesor the instruments; that these are simply conduits granted by God for human expression.

Worship is not about traditional, contemporary or a workable blend. Each generation preserves as well as contributes.

Worship is not about what posture we take kneeling, sitting, standing, hands to the side or raised high in the air. It's not about our eyes being open or closed.

Frankly put, worship is not about us...or what we can "get" out of itat all.

Worship is much simpler, much truer, than that. It is a choice; a deliberate action that does not need anything but our willing hearts engaging God's heart.

One-on-one.

Heart-to-heart.

Alone or in a crowd.

Giving Him the honor and glory due Him regardless of our circumstances.

Regardless of our feelings.

Regardless of what else might be demanding our time and attention.

There right where we are we, too, can simply adore and reverence Him.
