You can’t express deep adoration for Jesus if you’re not intensely aware of His presence, power, and majesty. If your heart isn’t overflowing with adoration for Jesus, maybe you’ve only heard about Him, but haven’t actually encountered Him.
If you will ponder God with your heart, you’ll gradually become aware of His presence. Then adoration will begin to flow from within you.
Adoration is to be so captivated by the presence of God that you abandon personal preferences in order to worship and obey Him. Genuine restoration with God produces passionate, ongoing adoration for Him.
We can admire Jesus while we do our own thing, but once we begin to adore Him, we’re forever changed from deep within. Any attempt to formalize, ritualize, and script adoration stifles its free expression.
If you’re not passionately in love with Jesus now, you’d probably be pretty bored with Heaven’s ongoing, adoring focus on Him. Without active adoration worship is rote. When adoration becomes a duty, it’s no longer adoration.
The more you accommodate
The living Jesus,
The more you’ll radiate
Rather than giving Jesus
Church tends to become
A mere oration.
Instead of cultivating An atmosphere Of actively adoring The risen Jesus, Church can settle for Being boring.
