ReThink Church: Pt 2.2 Grace and Worship…

“And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!” (6)  Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. (7) And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.” (8) And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”    Isaiah 6:5-8

When we encounter the presence of God, certain thing become very clear.  We are aware of God’s Righteousness and our unrighteousness.  However, God shows us His incredible love, mercy, and grace.  His acceptance and forgiveness is overwhelming and leaves us with only one acceptable response – WORSHIP.  When we are enveloped by God’s grace, it causes a wellspring of gratitude and joy.  “Yes Lord”, becomes our only reasonable service of worship. (Romans 12:1-2)

“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (2) Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”    Romans 5:1-2

Through faith we should enjoy living in a constant state and awareness of God’s grace.  Living in God’s grace produces a life of worship.

Are you aware of His Grace?
