Our Mighty God of Sanctity (6 of 6)
Series: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
It is said that, many years ago, a group of renowned English authors sat one day discussing what they would do if certain heroes of history were to suddenly enter the room. What would they do if Horace, Cicero, Dante, or Shakespeare were to appear before them, they asked each other through the course of the conversation. Finally, someone asked, "What would you do if Jesus were to appear before us?" One of the great authors spoke up, and said, "If Cicero were to appear before us, I would salute him. If Dante were to appear before us, I would shake his hand. If Shakespeare were to appear before us, I would rise up to do him honor. But, if Jesus Christ were to enter this room, I should fall down and give him worship!" 1
Now, I must admit to you that there are many things of which I am uncertain. However, of one thing I am certain of, and that is, if our Lord suddenly appeared before us, today, I would have to fall down before Him, and worship the One who died for me. You see, I believe in these days, our idea of worship have become somewhat erroneous. To many, worship is a song, or a shout. To others, worship is a solemn occurrence, with little or no emotion in it at all. However, true worship is a method, a motive, and a matter of the heart. True worship involves petition as well as praise, preaching as well as prayer, hearing as well as speaking, actions as well as words, obeying as well as offering; and, loving people as well as loving God. I like how the great theologian, A. W. Tozer defined worship, he said, "To worship God is to recognize His worth; to look God-ward, and to acknowledge in all appropriate ways the value of what we see." 2 Thus, I say to you, today, He is truly a God who demands our praise, desires our praise; and, without a doubt, deserves our praise, for He is "Our Mighty God Of Sanctity!"
