qualified to serve

Psalm 101:6 (JDV)

Psalm 101:6 My eyes favor the faithful of the land so that they may stay sitting with me. The one who follows the road to integrity may serve me.

qualified to serve

McMinn says “God is not just seeking worship. He’s seeking worshipers (John 4). Otherwise, we could just insert a compact disk of praise music, put it on continuous play, and be done with it. God would be appeased and we could do our own thing. But it’s not that simple, God is looking for worshipers – people.

And, of course, He’s more interested in the condition of our hearts than the position of our hands and in the choices of our volition than in the beauty of our voices. Yes, God enjoys our singing, clapping, and kneeling, but it does no good to bend the knee before God if we have not first bent our hearts” (26).

LORD, change our hearts so that we qualify to serve and worship you!
