Because of Bethlehem, Session 2, Worship Works Wonders
The angels gave Jesus the gift of worship. Anytime we trust an object or activity to give us life and meaning, we worship it. When we make *good* things our *ultimate* things, we set ourselves up for disappointment. To worship replacements for God is to be satisfied, then brokenhearted; infatuated, then discouraged; enthralled, then angry. Worship does to the soul what a spring rain does to a thirsty field. It soaks down, seeps in, and stirs life.
