Worshipping with Gateway
February 14, 2012
"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come.
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You."
You probably recognized this chorus from the powerful anthem "Revelation Song." This is one of those songs that has always spoken to me, mainly because it gets the attention off of me and back to the holiness of God. This song just never gets old!
Because this song is one of my favorites, I was excited when the band who wrote the song came to Cedarville this past week. The band, called Gateway Worship, was here to lead worship and workshops at our annual worship conference. Because I am part of OneVoice gospel choir, I had a chance to sing back up with them during the last four songs they sang at their concert Friday evening.
While singing with Gateway was great (seriously, it was so cool!), I found myself more affected by the attitude of worship I saw in the band. Their passion for God was not only moving, but contagious. Seeing them worship God made me want to join in even more. I can't even begin to explain to you the spirit of worship that swept across the chapel. I can't help but be struck by the reality that worship moments like that are so fulfilling because that is what God created us to do. And the two hours or so that we spent exalting the Savior is only a small taste of what we will be doing forever in eternity.
I want to leave you a challenge from another one of Gateway's songs called, "Stay Amazed." The chorus says:
"Oh Holy God
I stay amazed
You are so much more than words could ever say
Oh Holy God
I pour out my praise
To the One who never ceases to amaze"
May we never stopped being amazed by Him!
