"Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.”Matthew 2:2 NLT

Tis the season to come and worship! We worship Jesus as King because He first loved us and gave Himself for us. I find it interesting that it really is about us. Look at the Lord’s Prayer, how did Jesus teach us to pray?

Our (not my)Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us (not me) this day our (not my) daily bread, and forgive us (not me) our (not my) trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us (not me), and lead us (not me) not into temptation, but deliver us (not me)from evil...

Yes, there is a real sense that Jesus died for me, but not only me. It was for US. He died! It’s you and me together that makes up His body. When WE worship Him together, WE bring the Three-in- One, Father, Son and Holy Spirit the honor and glory They are due. And when WE worship together, They are pleased!

Prayer: Lord, WE long to bless You and please You. Holy Spirit, fill US, empower US to be the people WE are designed to be. WE come and worship You together!
