Again this morning I was struck by the truth that I absolutely cannot worship God in spirit if I’m not confronted with the truth of the distinction between him and me. The most powerful catalyst to genuine worship in my life is to reflect on my sin and his greatness. I suggest we make it a life long practice to reflect on our sin as we sing of his glory.
As we sang this song this morning, I was overcome by the realization of how my heart is given to another, my pride.
We bow our hearts, We bend our knees
O’ spirit come make us humble
We turn our eyes, From evil things
O’ Lord we cast down our idols.
Give us clean hands, Give us pure hearts
Let us not lift our souls to another
O’ God let us be, A generation that seeks,
That seeks Your face, O’ God of Jacob
(cf. Psalms 24:4-5)
