Worship as a
Lifestyle
SQUARE ONE

Before any note is played, before any word is sung, and before
any hand is raised, worship starts with humility as we focus on
God.  We are little and he is big.  Really big.  God has beautifully
revealed himself so that no one has any excuse.  "Since the
creation of the world, His invisible attributes, His eternal power
and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood
thruogh what has been made."  (Romans 1:20)

Some have said that God is a creation of man's mind.  The truth
is that God is so far beyond what our minds could ever create
that this is not possible.  He spoke and all things were created.  
No one can create the intricacies of life like God.  Seeing the
components of just one cell of our bodies is enough to humble
anyone.  God only has to
speak and things happen.

God is far beyond the limitation of time.  He knew you and I
before we ever became a gleam in our parents' eyes (Psalm
139:13-16)  He knows us intimately.  No one can claim that,
including ourselves.

God is so holy and
just, he had a plan of salvation ready before
we even chose to turn our backs on him.  What patience.  What
love.  What a God!  When we were yet sinners, Christ died for
us.  The enormity of this truth is staggering.  Jesus Christ gave
himself a holy sacrifice for Caesar, Adolf Hitler, Jeffrey Dahmer,
you, and me.

Isaiah wrote, "Do you not know?  Have you not heard?  Has it
not been decared to you from the beginning?  Have you not
understood from the foundations of the earth?  It is He (God
Almighty) who sits above the circle of the earth, and its
inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens
like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.  He it
is who reduces rulers to nothing, who makes the judges of the
earth meaningless"  (Isaiah 40:21-23)  He goes on to say, "lift
up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars"
(Isaiah 40:26)

Square One in worship is humbling ourselves before our Creator.
The only reason that anyone would not worship with their whole
being is that they have not "lifted their eyes" to see
who God is.
