Glory to God

When the Holy Spirit comes among us with His anointing, we become a worshiping people! Now, that does not mean that all Christians everywhere must all worship alike—but that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, believers everywhere are united in their praises to God. When Jesus came into Jerusalem presenting Himself as Messiah, there was a great multitude and there was a great noise. Very often our worship is audible, but I do not believe it is necessarily true that we are worshiping God when we are making a lot of racket. But I think there is a word for those who are cultured, quiet, self-possessed, poised, and sophisticated. If they are embarrassed in church when some happy Christian says “Amen!” they may actually be in need of some spiritual enlightenment. If some believer's “Glory to God!” really bothers you, it may be because you do not know the kind of spiritual blessing and delight the Holy Spirit is waiting to provide among God's worshiping saints. I can only speak for myself, but I want to be among those who worship!

Verse

The spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you. 1 Peter 4:14

Thought

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, believers everywhere are united in their praises to God.

Prayer

Lord, thank You that through Your Spirit we have a joy in worship that can not be had in any other way.
