Relationships define us. We only exist to the extent that we are known. Thanks be to God that he knows us fully. Our life and being, therefore, is secure in his knowledge of us. Yet for us to taste all of that life and being, for us to step into its fullness, we must know God. And he invites us to know him through worship. Worship is the means by which a human person moves toward fullness. In worship, we receive revelation of who God is, we glimpse his glory, we see true life and love. In worship, we envision what we were made for and where we are going. Worship takes our eyes off our present condition and sets our gaze on a new way of being. Worship is imagining that the heavens have come to earth. And the more we imagine it, the more we realize that indeed they have. We can taste full life and being now -- if only we would stop worshiping ourselves.
