#slowitdownSunday / the heart of worship

#slowitdownSunday:
God told us to rest. And that we will. Linger, I like to call it.

Do you remember this old worship tune by Matt Redman?

When the music fades
and all is stripped away
and I simply come.
Longing just to bring
something that’s of worth
that will bless Your heart.

I’ll bring You more than a song,
for a song in itself
is not what You have required.
You search much deeper within,
through the way things appear,
You’re looking into my heart.

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
and it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus.
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
when it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus.

[The Heart of Worship by Matt Redman]

Matt tells about how this song was born out of a time when his home church was going through a struggle in their worship. Their pastor decided to get rid of the sound system and worship band for a season. They focused on the congregation coming together with only their voices.

The pastor asked: “When you come through the doors on a Sunday, what are you bringing as your offering to God?”

Today – what are we bringing as our offering to God?

Psalms 145: 18-19 NLT

The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them.

I want to get back to the heart of worship, not just on Sundays, but every single day. I’m sorry, Lord – for the thing I’ve made it. It’s all about You. It’s all about You, Jesus.
