Meet Jeff, Cathi, Cade and Bren Crossgrove.
I have recently been given a book called "Extravagant Worship" by Darlene Zschech. As I read through the pages I am beginning to realize where I am in worship. Our ultimate goal should be to become extravagant worshipers. By definition extravagant means:
- exceeding the limits of reason
- lacking in moderation, balance, and restraint
- extremely or excessively elaborate
- spending much more than necessary
When you apply extravagant to the word worship...it certainly puts things into a different perspective.
I challenge you to really dwell on this excerpt from Darlene's book......
"When we stand before the Lord to worship Him, we are to worship Him in truth. To do so, we must ask ourselves, How big are the debts Jesus canceled for me? How generous was He toward me when considering the pain my sins inflicted upon Him? How much thanks do I owe Him for canceling the consequences of my past? Am I overgenerous with my worship? Do I exceed reasonable limits when praising Him? Or am I merely doing what is required, merely fulfilling the basic level of commitment? Am I simply trying to earn my right of passage? If our worship is spiritual and truthful, we will search our souls and appraise the value we place on His love for us. What can we bring to the altar that represents extravagance?"
Are you an extravagant worshiper completely sold out for God? Are you truly giving God all the praise and energy you have within you? Seek Him and he will seek You!!
John 4:23-24 says "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
Worship Him in ALL things. God Bless!
