May I take your order, please? Yeah, I’ll have three hymns and two choruses sung with meaning, one prayer, and three points in a 20-minute sermon. Hold the pastoral ramblings, please.” All right, thank you. Drive up to the next window to deposit your tithe.” Do you enter God’s presence with a fast-food attitude? For many of us, this kind of drive-thru attitude has crept into our worship each week. If entering God’s presence has become just another breathless task on your “to do” list, maybe it’s time to consider how you can slow down and savor a richer kind of worship. In order to do that, we must exchange our anxiousness about time constraints for an attitude of anticipation. When you prayerfully surrender your concerns to God, you will discover tremendous freedom to focus on Him as you worship. He will challenge you to give your heart completely, not cheaply, and in those moments of true worship, God will make Himself known to you in a much richer way. God reveals Himself in proportion to our devotion to Him. The early church is a striking example of this. God demonstrated His wonders in accordance with the believers’ desire to seek Him. Acts 2:42-43 says, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.” After I pick up my order, I open my bag of fast food and pull out the piping-hot portion. My mouth salivates in anticipation…until I discover that my burger tastes like well-worn shoe leather than the flame-broiled specialty I’d hoped for. The same principle is true in our worship. Fast is not usually best. When we are in a hurry to worship God, we get exactly what we have asked for: a disappointing and often mundane experience. Like fast food, fast worship fails to satisfy our inner hunger. As we stand, singing together as one voice, let’s take time to focus in on who God is, His many wonders and His matchless love for us.
