Authentic Worship

I was reminded by a friend yesterday just how powerful true worship can be.  Typically when I think of worship I think of a connection that happens when we sing songs of praise to God.  My friend related an experience of teenage girls who were attending a purity conference falling to their knees and crying out to God in worship after experience breakthrough in the knowledge of just how precious God's view of them really is.  God sees each of us as unique and worthy of the sacrifice of his son Jesus.  I am thankful for my friend Marcy and her willingness to invest in the lives of 25 teenage girls, and I am grateful that I serve a God that sees us each as unique and worth pursuing.

Hebrews 12:25-29
See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks.  If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?  At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.
