True worship is not about me...

True worship is not about me. It is not about my knowledge, my experience, my healing, my empowerment. True worship proclaims and enacts the narrative of God's story. It is about the God of character, the God who is just, righteous, holy, merciful, and loving. It is about the God who acts, the God who creates a good world, the God who mourns over a world gone astray, the God who rescues the world-not by power but by weakness. It is about the God who cannot be contained in all the heavens, yet became contained in the womb of the Virgin Mary, born of her the Savior of the world. Worship is about the God who does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. It thankfully remembers how God became incarnate as the second Adam to reverse the human situation. He who knew no sin became one of us, and took on the consequence of our sin, death. By death he destroyed death, restored the nature of humanity, and opened the way to heaven. ...Robert Webber
