Lego and worship
Hebrews 13:15 (ESV) Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Playing with Lego as a little kid was always one a fun thing. It was fun to build anything. I liked building houses, towns, cars and pretty much anything else I could dream up. I remember once getting a new kit. I opened up the instruction booklet that came with the set and began following each step to construct it. In all the excitement to build the set, however, I began to realize that I had missed a step somewhere in the building process. Things began to look a little strange, and it just wasn’t looking right. Because I missed a step along the way, things began to not look right. That reminds me of how its like for us to worship God. Much of the time we try to get the end result of worship, singing, eyes closed, hands clapping and whatever else worship looks like, but we often forget a step. Often when we worship, we forget why it is that we worship. And sometimes, we forget why we even can worship. We’re able to worship because of our relationship with God. God wants nothing more than a relationship with you. He loves you and wants to know you in a deeper and more real way. This relationship enables us to worship God and enjoy him in a deeper way. Dear Lord, we thank You that You want a relationship with us. Help us to always strive to share that through our worship. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
