And the captain of the LORD’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.
Do you quietly bow your head in reverence when you step into the average gospel church?
I am not surprised if your answer is no.
There is grief in my spirit when I go into the average church, for we have become a generation rapidly losing all sense of divine sacredness in our worship. Many whom we have raised in our churches no longer think in terms of reverence—which seems to indicate they doubt that God’s Presence is there.
In too many of our churches, you can detect the attitude that anything goes. It is my assessment that losing the awareness of God in our midst is a loss too terrible ever to be appraised. WHT117
Lord, I pray that we might restore to our worship a real sense of the divine sacredness of Your Presence in our churches and in our lives. Amen.
