What better time to begin a pursuit of the Living God in worship than the Holiday Season? One easily recognizes the amazing act of God’s gift to humanity in the form of a tiny baby, Jesus Christ. Even before God’s precious gift of His Son he blessed humanity with the gift of Himself.
In ancient Israel the Lord God (Yahweh) revealed Himself to His people in an age where humanity worshiped false gods, even unknown gods. In this world filled with uncertainty of how to please the gods and confusion in how to offer them receivable worship Creator God reveals Himself and clearly articulates His expectations for acceptable worship.
If God had not first revealed Himself to us we would be lost. This Christmas season as we thank God for the gift of His Son may we also thank Him for initiating a way for humanity to know Him through personal revelation. May our hearts be filled with gratitude as we, “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2
