Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-97: On the Street: One of Those Days

Do you ever have those days when you need a word from the Lord?

Mine come with frequency.  It happens, usually in the evening when I can simply say I am tired.  The solution can be a good night’s sleep.  Today, as I wrote, was one of those days.  I was totally deflated.  I was not depressed, just void of joy.

The problem was, it was morning. 

So I left off the radio and did not connect the I-pod.  This was not a day for a sermon.  It was a day to worship as I drove.  It is hard to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit when you have a lot of distractions.

Certain songs came to mind.

   "My Desire, to be like Jesus..."

   "My Life Is in You, Lord..."

Certain scripture came to mind.
(Micah 6:8 NAS77)  He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?
(Romans 5:8 NAS77)  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
We had a good conversation on the way to work.  I can honestly say that the traffic did not bother me.  I figured that every clown that cut in front of me just gave me more time to worship.

So I am ready to go again.  I am not feeling old and tired.  I am feeling experienced and prepared.
