The God We Worship

Encountering the Trinity in Worship
The music we sing is important. We encounter the Trinity, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, through music during worship. Trinitarian worship is the worship of the Father, through the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Consider These Final Thoughts...
If the world had not been created, would there still be worship?
- Yes, in the very relationships between the Trinity we see worship, which means giving worth to one another.
- As Christians, we've been handed a great gift. We've been sucked into that internal life of the Trinity.
- Salvation is to be drawn into the divine life. And worship is one key expression of that.
- Think of a child dancing on top of a father's shoes. Who is dancing? Who is providing the energy? Both.
- Worship is part of climbing on the feet of Jesus Christ as he participates in the dance with the Father and Spirit.
Again, what in the world does the Trinity have to do with the music we sing in worship?
