Worship takes us into a reality that is governed not by the principles of physics but the presence of the Holy. It is truly an act of resistance to come together every week: Through Christ’ sacrifice, we are now blood brothers and sisters of Jesus. Worship is a Christ act, that generates a Christian response of resistance:
*seeks the welfare of the city
*justice for many, if not all
*no personal gain
*names evil, unjust structures
*does not vilify opponents for character flaws
“You meant this for evil, God will make it good.”
These tired old bodies, these fisted-minds, these broken relationships, these discouraged souls, these disease-ravaged families, we’re asked to hold fast, to cling to faith.
