Worship

“The Lord is king!
    Let the earth rejoice!
    Let the farthest coastlands be glad.”

 Psalms 97:1

Worship is the goal of missions because in missions we simply aim to bring the nations into the white-hot enjoyment of God’s glory.  The goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God.

“May the nations praise you, O God.
Yes, may all the nations praise you.
Let the whole world sing for joy,
because you govern the nations with justice
and guide the people of the whole world.” – Psalms 67:3-4

You cannot commend what you don’t cherish.  Missionaries will never call out this verse if they cannot say from the heart —

“May all my thoughts be pleasing to him,
for I rejoice in the Lord. I will be filled with joy because of you.
I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.”                  – Psalms 104:34; 9:2

Missions begins and ends in worship.

Where passion for God is weak, zeal or missions will be weak.  Churches that are not centred on exalting the majesty and beauty of God will scarcely kindle a fervent desire to declare His glory among the nations.

Here I am to Worship

Let It Be Known
