Pulse #1 - Wired

Hey everyone. Here's the first installment in the "Pulse" series that I'm teaching at our monthly Worship Vision Night. I apologize for the audio not syncing up with the video. It looks & sounds perfect until I upload it. Then for some reason, it gets out of sync. Without further ado...

We are all wired to worship. We were created to worship. The question is, what are you worshipping?

"Worship is a universal urge, hard wired by God into the very fiber of our being-an inbuilt need to connect with god" -Rick Warren

As stated earlier, God created you to be a worshipper. You don't need to be trained in worship. It comes naturally. Now, back to the question, what are you worshipping? Here in Alaska, it's very easy for us to worship the beauty of creation rather than the Beautiful Creator. As musicians, it's too easy to slip into idolatry of our instruments & talents rather than being thankful to the One who gave us our gifts. Remember, we are blessed to be a blessing. Cliche, but true. What else? There's the stars, singers, athletes. What about the not so obvious...our kids, ourselves, worship. Yes, I said worship. You can get so wrapped up in the "expressions" of worship & miss the boat completely on the object of our worship.

Psalm 135:15-18 (New International Version)

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
made by the hands of men.

16 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
eyes, but they cannot see;

17 they have ears, but cannot hear,
nor is there breath in their mouths.

18 Those who make them will be like them,
and so will all who trust in them.

WVN Teaching on Psalm 135

So, what is the object of our worship? What should the object of our worship be?

Let's get honest...He already knows.

BLESSINGS in the journey!
