God in everything we do

16 12 2009

I was watching this clip. Amazingness begins at around the 4:50 minute mark. You have to watch the whole thing to ramp up into it, though.

What struck me when watching was a question that will probably cling to my soul for a long time. What will it take for the presence of God to be heavy in all that we do?

The thing I really find amazing in worship is the presence of God. If you are unsure if you have ever felt the presence of God during worship, then ask for God to open your heart to His heart. You might like what you find or you might not.

Honestly, I had never felt the presence of God through worship until Urbana 2000. But now is not time for that story, this is a time to ponder a question, “What will it take for the presence of God to be heavy in all that we do?”

What if serving food at a shelter caused us to feel the presence of God?

What if visiting someone in the hospital caused us to feel the presence of God?

What if giving a verbal witness caused us to feel the presence of God?

What if you knew you were going to die for standing up for Jesus, but in the moment of doing so the presence of God was so strong that dispite the pain, there was a presence of God so real, so amazing that you knew it was worth it?

What will it take for the presence of God to be heavy in all that we do?

I don’t have any answers here, I just have the one simple question.
