“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” John 4:23
During COVID, we have heard the term,
“Front Line Workers.”
Definition, “We define “frontline workers” as employees within essential industries who must physically show up to their jobs. Rather than capture every worker within essential industries, we propose identifying a subset of workers in specific frontline occupations who face a variety of health risks in their workplaces.”
At Church and in Church
I suggest what the church needs are front line worshippers. People that realize that what is essential work in the house of God is to engage your whole being to worship.
The purpose is two-fold.
To Give Glory to God!
To Lead the way for those who might not be as purposeful or spiritually aware when they get to Church.
Our world needs people who are unapologetic and bold in their devotion to their faith in God.
We live this out to by walking out of our homes spiritually aware and prepared to face our day with God and for God. Sadly, we often rush out the door and drag back in at the end of the day with very little intentional engagement of our minds and hearts toward God. God will bless the results of this purposeful engagement of the spirit.
We are physically awake, but spiritually we are asleep. In a best-case scenario, we have a neutral effect. However, often when saints are spiritually asleep, their carnality is fully awake. The damage done to their witness and opportunity to be a soul-winner is greatly diminished.
I believe in this day, God is looking for worshippers. The eyes of the Lord will bless those that will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. At Church and every moment, we find ourselves outside of the church walls.
God help us all to realize how vital and essential our witness is to our world. Something more dangerous than COVID is the damnation of our individual carnality unless we experience the Born Again Salvation that Jesus offers.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
Your Worship and Witness are vitally important to the eternal destination of those you will meet today.
May God Help us to engage our honored privilege to be a Frontline Worshipper fully.
In Him, By Him, Through Him,
