BY ANDREW SHEFFIELD
Worship is war. The great battle of all time is the battle for worship—the battle to win the adoration and service of earth and heaven. And when we gather for corporate worship, part of what we’re doing is fighting in this battle. So we must be serious about our task. We must be serious about being unified in our task. We must be serious about being steadfast in our task. And if we are to be serious, unified, and steadfast, we must above all be focused only on Christ. He is the object of our worship, and He is the reason we can worship rightly. So fix your eyes on Him, continuing to come together week in and week out to fight so that Christ will be exalted in His church and in the world.
