Our thoughts on worship:

 

The question is often asked, “How do I get into God’s presence?” People yearn to know God and to dwell where He dwells. What’s the secret? People ply the men who know, or should know, about how they can reach the heart of God. Well, here’s the answer. You only have to sing.

 

God cannot give himself praise so he looks to us to do it. God builds His throne in our praise for it’s our contribution to His coronation. He loves to live in the stances and metres of melody that issue from the redeemed heart. All God is concerned with is that people are “making melody in their heart” (Ephesians 5:19). It opens a door into His presence quicker than most other things. His express command was and still is: “Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving; enter His courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name.” (Psalm 100:4).

 

The western mind loves definitions, because what defies definition cannot be taught. But, having written their definitions they often close their mind to further understanding and that which gave them insight becomes their prison. It is possible to lay an old double-washed Chinese carpet in such a way that it looks new. When turned round, the light falling on the pile makes it much lighter. It is the same carpet viewed from a different angle. It is the light that makes the difference. God’s calling to ministers, or pastors of His flock, is not to replace the carpet (truth) but put it in a position where the light reveals it better. It is therefore wise to keep our definitions bathed in God’s light of revelation; it will keep them looking fresh.
