Worship - Dean Chicquette
All valid worship comes forth from the essence of God. Any union or communion comes from and through the Spirit of the Creator. Worship in itself is a creation conceived through faith, wrapped in love and trust, and empowered by the Word. Worship without these essential Elements, without God in it, through it, moving out from it and right back to it, is powerless, unexpressed, and impotent. From our perspective, true worship is the outgrowing of God taking His place in and living out through His creation, He the All in All.
Where and when did this worship begin and to where does it travel? It began in the beginning where the unknown sprang into the known and abides in the very expression of expressing. That breath wrapped into the Word builds the cathedral in which it resonates and appeases savage souls who hear it, they falling face down worship discovering two immense unmovable truths. God is good and His lovingkindness is everlasting.
And so it is as each temple of God is dedicated as His Royal entrance. Those whose bodies become His temple cry out Holy, Holy, Holy is our God, and His loving-kindness lasts forever. Overcome with Truth, the Word finds again breath pressed against lips and utterances that proclaimed that which cannot be wrapped in words alone. Worship in bodies creates a place where God resides on the wings of captured lips. Yes, even bound to His goodness and everlasting kindness.
