Listen to these insightful words from Eugene Peterson:
"Worship is an act of attention to the living God who rules, speaks and reveals, creates and redeems, orders and blesses ... failure to worship consigns us to a life of spasms and jerks, at the mercy of every advertisement, every seduction, every siren."
By centering our worship on Jesus, God helps us remain secure in the gift of his grace, without the fear of being held hostage by every little thing.
Thought: It is best to rather be 'at the mercy' of Jesus.
Living in Grace
