Worshiping the Newborn King

“Men of wealth, influence, and intellect: what did they do when they saw Jesus? ‘They … fell down and worshiped him’ (Matthew 2:11 NKJV).

Worship. It’s a gift that extends to the giver as well. Through worship, we come to see God more clearly. God invites us, through worship, to see his face so he can change ours. ‘We all show the Lord’s glory, and we are being changed to be like him. This change in us brings ever greater glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit’ (2 Corinthians 3:18). …

In worship, we simply stand before God with a prepared and willing heart and let God do his work. And he does.”

My prayer this week: Oh come let us adore you, Christ the Lord! Change me, day by day, hour by hour, to be more like you.
