The Heart of Worship: Unsatisfied

 

Worship-as-a-Lifestyle

Our worship series continues from the book “The Unquenchable Worshipper,” by Matt Redman.

UNSATISFIED | WORSHIPPER

[Quoting Eugene Peterson] “‘Worship does not satisfy our hunger for God – it whets our appetite.’ The more we see of Jesus, the more we know there’s still so much to be seen. The more He touches our lives, the more we realize our desperate need for Him to consume every part of us.”

“I’m an unfinished heart … I remain an unsatisfied worshipper, limping toward wholeness yet full of hope and gratitude.”

“The more we see God’s perfection, the more we realize the imperfection all around us. True worshippers look outward, noticing the world they live in and longing to make a difference to the injustice, poverty, and pain that surrounds them.”

“There’s a holy, sometimes painful, frustration that cuts right to the heart of the unsatisfied worshipper. Everything in us knows ‘it wasn’t meant to be this way.’ We become intercessors – people who see the gap and long to stand in it. God imparts to us His heart for restoration, and a burning desire to see His love and justice heal the nations … God longs to bring us to the place where we ache so much with His heart that to do nothing is simply no longer an option.”

“God has made it very clear that worship and justice are inseparable.”

“C.S. Lewis sums it up best: ‘If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.'”
