Sunday Seed Thoughts: Jesus Centered Worship

Seed Thoughts

In John’s Revelation, Jesus is the center of worship in the great throne scene in chapter 5. The angels, living creatures and elders along with the number of ten thousand times ten thousand cried out “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor, and glory and blessing!”

Today is Sunday. The first day of the week. As we assemble in our respective places of worship, we come to honor Jesus.

We sing about Him. His life. Death. Victory. He honor and praise Him as we teach and admonish one another.

Our prayers to God are ““in the name of Jesus.” That is, they are by His authority. He is our mediator. Our access to the Father.

Our Communion is Christ centered. We remember Him. We reflect on the importance of the cross. And we see our need for cleansing in His blood.

Our preaching is Christ centered. Every lesson. Every command. Every duty. They all come back to Christ. They are revolved around Him.

Even our contribution is given to further the work of Christ. It honors Him

Today, where ever you are in the world, don’t lose focus of the center of your worship. Jesus Christ.

  1. This is exactly what I needed to hear today. I feel as if so many in the modern complexity of church have “lost focus on the center of it all”. As followers of Jesus, we are simply called to imitate Him and allow His love and forgiveness to flow through us as an extension of our relationship.

    “The seed that fell among the thorns represents those who hear God’s word, but all the message is crowded out by the worries of this life…. so no fruit is produced.” Mark 4: 18-19
