Think, Act, Be, Day 17-Psalm 95:1-7
Come, let us worship and bow down
Worship summons us into the presence of our Shepherd God. We’re his sheep, and we’re called to come, bow down, and honor him. He’s the Good Shepherd who created us and everything else in the world. That’s often not how we approach worship.
A little boy (not mine) was drawing something in church and looked up at his dad and asked, “Dad, how do you spell God?” The proud father, assuming he was drawing a picture of God, whispered, “G-o-d.” A few minutes later the boy asked part two of his question: “Dad, how do you spell “Zilla?”
Our minds in worship might be on everything—including Godzilla. But God calls us to kneel in humility, give thanks for his provision, and allow him to care for us.
O come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
3 For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and the dry land, which his hands have formed.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down,
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
7 For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand
