“When Gideon heard the account of the dream and its interpretation, he bowed in worship. He returned to the camp of Israel and said, ‘Arise, for the Lord has given the camp of Midian into you hands’” (Judges 7:15).
Worship for some is introspective. For others it is expressive. For all of us, however, it is to be “egress-sive.” That is, worship should bring forth action in a life of service and dedication to the call of Christ and the mission of his church. Coming to an understanding of God’s plan, and his role within that plan, Gideon worshipped. It was an experience that did not end at the altar of introspection or expression, but evoked a response that sent him forth to fulfill a mission. Are you worshipping “egress-sively”?
