The Essence of Worship

March 8th, 2020

People will stop at nothing to avoid pain and suffering, but it unfortunately comes to everyone and in a variety of ways. What makes suffering even worse is when it’s experienced by those doing right. Isn’t it difficult not to challenge and question God in those times? As Eugene Peterson points out, “perhaps the greatest mystery in suffering is how it can bring a person into the presence of God.” This is God’s intention for you, that worship would transcend your troubles and that your experiences would be brought into right perspective.
