It’s essential. It’s foundational. Without it our worship would be like a choir without a song or a Super Bowl without a football team. It is the crucial necessity of intimately knowing the person of God.
In Jesus‘ priestly prayer He said, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent” (John 17:3).
If we could pray but one prayer, it should be that we would grow to know and love God more. When those two things are happening, all other aspects of the Christian life – such as prayer, obedience, serving, and giving – grow as a direct result. And that includes our worship life. True worship is grounded in the critical issue of knowing and loving God.
Here’s the problem. . . .
