Forgiveness – An act of worship

When hurt by others, we often only see the horizontal significance of what occurred. “This is about me and the one who hurt me!” we argue. Yet those who worship God are called to view forgiveness as an act of worship. This is primarily about God and secondarily about me or my offender. When we forgive, we “let go of” instead of “holding on to” or “holding against.”

Forgiveness is an act of releasing to God the hurtful actions and consequences of the wrong done to us. Continue reading

Un-sanitized Worship

If the psalmist, David applied for a staff position in our Churches and gave us his “diary of worship” to better understand his life, we might hesitate to give him serious consideration? We would at least want clarification on his imprecatory psalms. Is it possible that we have a lot to learn in our churches from this man after God’s own heart? Continue reading
