If I see what GOD sees, HE would see to it that I am shut-off from sin. If all the pieces of my life are broken and unrepairable for the sake of HIS Gospel; HE would salvage me with the dividend of HIS Salvation.
Worship is meekness fighting pride; is tears; is fear; is honour; is joy; is hope; is skin; is beauty; is surreal; is imagination; is GOD walking through man; is heartbeat and hell being starved.
GOD is likened to a tree and the root of it and we were all made to be part of GOD. We see the tree: the stem, the branches, the leaves but in most cases we do not see the roots and how far they stretch deep into the soil to seek nutrients and water.
It begins with lack of joy for the bounty of creation; it comes from comparison: the need to covet, the hunger to be like another. For the Adams, it was to be like GOD, for us it is sometimes to be like a neighbour…
If you accept the fruit but deny the root even though the shoot cannot be without its root, you have simply told a side of the story based on what you can see.
