A. W. Tozer, in one of his books on Worship, has a shocking statement. He basically tells his readers that they are worshipping incorrectly—but that it’s ok, because everyone worships incorrectly.
Why? Because we cannot worship God fully until we are changed out of this sinful body and into a glorified one.
Because no matter how hard we try, we are imperfect. Our sin nature falls short of perfection, and even though we have accepted Christ as Savior and have been redeemed through His shed blood, we are still at war with the Old Man. We still have a nature that is imperfect.
It’s frustrating to try to be good, and yet know of its impossibility. And yet we all know this quite well because of dealings in all areas of life. Whether it’s relationships or our jobs, we all know that we can never be perfect, no matter how hard we try.
Frustrating, and yet peaceful—knowing that someday this will be made right.
