Authentic Worship...part two

"We call worship 'divine service', but we usually get it back to front when we do so.  We, naturally enough, dwell on what we have to do, when we come to church, or hold our devotions.  But that is not really what worship is all about; it is more a matter of receiving than doing; it is first and foremost what God does for us, not what we do for God.  The activity of God lies at the heart of Christian worship.  Human activity is secondary and dependent on God's initiative with us in it."
-Dr. John Kleinig from his article "The Biblical View of Worship", Concordia Theological Quarterly 1994

Knowing that God serves us in worship is the greatest comfort.  Worship, forgiveness, salvation and God's mercy are always what our God, through His Son our Savior, has done for us.

"We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies."  II Corinthians 4: 8-10

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
