A Great Need among Us: More Reverence 我們需要更多的敬畏“(Hebrews 希伯來書 12:28-29)

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’


The whole Christian family stands desperately in need of a restoration of penitence, humility and tears! If all the worshippers in unplanned worships were reverent and Spirit-filled, the Holy Spirit would work freely. Yet, most unplanned worships had neither order nor Spirit, just meaningless repetition with minor variations losing all significance! A carefully prescribed form of service has little or no meaning for the average participant simply because the average participant is what he is. The liturgical service is at least beautiful, carefully worked out through the centuries to preserve a spirit of reverence among the worshippers. In many of our meetings there is scarcely a trace of reverent thought, no recognition of the unity of the body, little sense of the divine Presence, no moment of stillness, no solemnity, no wonder, no holy fear!


Prayer: God of Trinity, we were not fit to be in your presence, but you made us clean. We were dead in our sins, but you made us alive in Christ. Thank you for your overwhelming love and the gift of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. We should be thankful seizing your unmerited approval in Christ that helps us to worship/serve you acceptably with reverence and awe. Amen.
