On Sunday morning while in worship at my church I was given a glimpse of what worship might look like to God. We stand in our churches week after week, participating in corporate worship often without giving thought to the fact that believers all around the world are doing so, as well. Now I know Sunday morning isn’t the only time believers worship, but for the sake of illustration, imagine with me for a moment. Picture the earth as it turns, gradually bringing daylight to each part of the earth, a perpetual sunrise. Now imagine that believers all around the world arise and head to their chosen place of worship. Picture the gradual passing of time bringing each congregation into an attitude of worship and praise.
Do you see it? Have you ever witnessed the “wave” at a sporting event where all those in the stadium participate, raising their hands in succession all around the stadium in one fluid motion? Could it be one way God sees our worship? As one perpetual “wave” of praise going around the world? And not just on Sundays but every day that we choose to rise and offer praise to God as we start our day.
Hebrews 13:15 says, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that confess his name.”
You may be part of a large church or you may be just standing in your living room on a Monday morning, but no matter where you are, you always have the opportunity to be a part of a worldwide “wave of praise” being continually offered to God.
Choose to be part of the wave!
