"Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker." NIV
"O come, let us worship and bow down: Let us kneel before the Lord our maker." KJV
Have you watched the way a crowd shouts and waves as a popular singer or actor appears on the stage? Watch the crowds at a sports game waving banners, jumping up and screaming for their team. Is it too difficult for some of us to to demonstrate our love and adoration for the Lord by openly worshipping and kneeling in open praise? If people can get that excited over a rock star or football player, how much more should we be excited about the God who made us and provided a way for us to live with HIm in eternal perfection?
Heavenly Father, forgive us for our lack of boldness to openly worship and praise You. Give us the Spirit of overflowing praise so that our lives continually reflect the honor and worship of which only You are worthy. In Jesus' name, Amen.
