you can sit during worship

19 01 2010

I’ve made such a deal about standing and bowing in worship that I thought it would be good to mention that it’s OK to sit.

One thing I want to make clear is that standing isn’t some magical make-God-happy move. It has to be a choice to represent respect for His presence.

There are times when I sit, so let me explain why I sit.

When I stand or bow I actually can distract myself from internalizing what is going on in worship. Because I don’t sit much, when I do I use the time to focus on the lyrics, my heart condition and how much my soul actually wants to choose to worship.

When I eventually stand it must come out of choice in my heart that says, “I want to stand for God now.”

Honestly, this post isn’t some grand idea. I’m basically saying, “Be mindful of what you are doing in worship and why you are doing it.”

It will definitely be a much better experience for God and for you.
