2009-06-21 - Passages about Worship
First, we at CF Devotionals hope that all of you who are fathers will have a Happy Father's Day. For those of you for whom Father's Day is painful, we offer up a prayer for you.
Since many of us will be worshipping in churches this weekend, we present some passages about worship, in hopes of helping us to prepare our hearts for what someone has called the Christians most important work. All Scriptures are from the New International Version of the Bible (NIV).

Psalm 100:1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the Earth.
Psalm 95:1 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
John 4:21-24 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
