Worship and Justice
Guest Speaker: Darlene Zchech
'What does the Lord require of you? - To do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with Your God'
- Micah 6 v 8
Truthful worship requires us to be willing to get raw, honest, and vulnerable before God. It is here that God is able to slowly mould and shape our hearts into one that mirrors the heart of Jesus. This change is fuelled by God's great love for us and is designed to propel our focus and attention onto what concerns the Father - His people. This is why the condition of our heart is so critical. Without a heart that mirrors Jesus, we do not see the need around us and our lives become introverted, self-serving and very two dimensional.
Every one of us is capable of affecting and influencing much change on the earth, but we must never underestimate the value of kindness and compassion to the ONE person who is often right in our view if we choose to see them. This is the key to mirroring the heart of Jesus. Even though He was coming to free the whole world and to be the ransom for the whole of humanity - it is often displayed in the gospels how compassionate and gentle he was with individuals. We are able to love others, only because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
Worship is the fuel our hearts need to allow our lives to be poured out in service.We must allow our worship and devotion to God to motivate us into action. We were not made to be simply singers of songs, but lovers of God who worship Him not just with our voices, but with our whole lives.
