Worship Thoughts for Sunday 6.16
The exclusive pivotal moment in all of history relative to all of creation is the incarnation of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. In him the law is fulfilled, God’s holiness and justice is maintained, and payment for sin is made. Understandably, most Christian songs written today are all about Jesus.
However, we should continue to strive in recognizing and worshiping God in fullness and truth. This includes worshipping God as triune: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In his book Worshipping Trinity, Robin Parry reaffirms this effort, concluding that “worshipping the Trinity is the centre of Christian devotion.” Known for his work articulating the biblical evidence and support of the Triune Godhead, early church father Gregory of Nazianzus determined, “To the best of my powers I will persuade all people to worship Father, Son and Holy Spirit as the single Godhead and power, because to him belong all glory, honour, and might for ever and ever. Amen” (Worshipping Trinity, 16).
This week we conclude our song set with “Praise the Father, Praise the Son”, modernized by Chris Tomlin. Let our prayer and worship be to the Father, through the Son, by the Holy Spirit. See you Sunday!
Here are the songs we are singing this week
