What is worship these days for us? It certainly isn’t what it used to be; bowing down mumbling mantras “oh holy one”. So what do we do, bow down to the awesome guest band/speaker thats performing at church this week?
What does it mean to us? Last year, a lecturer told us worship is what we do with our lives, that shows what god we follow.
That still doesn’t cut it for me, I dont know. Because there are plenty of people out there doing awesome stuff but not associating themselves with ANY religion.
So what I actually wasnt to ask,
Is worship necessary?
If we go out and heal and eradicate global poverty, thats not worship, it’s just doing what Jesus, what common sense, tells us to do.
Is worship an act to show that you love “God”?
Can it be not genuine? If it isn’t, how would God know?
What the fuck is God anyway. I’ve been thinking that a lot. Actually questioning the existence of such a being and I’ve come up with something for now but still have lots of trouble linking old testament to new testament.
So, this odd word god that doesn’t even fit into my spectrum lately has been replaced by life.
I have renamed God for Life.
Just like Abram and Abraham
Just like Saul and Paul…
It just makes sense.
So instead of bringing “God” into something (and with it all the “I’m better than you, sinners will burn” type baggage), I’m just going to bring life. Simple 🙂
