My final observation from Paul’s classic text in Romans 12 was that worship results in a life that is re-oriented and re-directed to the will of God. In 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus published his final work, titled, On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres. His supposition displaced planet Earth as the center of the universe and proposed that the Earth rotated around the Sun. For the believer, worship is a daily and weekly “Copernican Revolution,” where he or she is displaced as the center of the universe. Worship is our acknowledgement that God is God and we are not. We are creature, he is creator. In a sense worship is the denial of our own divinity.

In worship we become re-oriented to the greatness of God. He is God, and we are not. This is the foundational key to understanding God’s will. When we deny our own divinity, we are in position to discern God’s will, agree with God’s will, and act upon God’s will. This is true of our lives personally and our churches corporately. It all begins with God in worship.

This weekend I’m moving to the next paragraph in Romans 12. The title of my sermon is “Check out your Equipment.” From verses 3-8, I’m going to talk about the equipment God gives us to enable us to perform his will. I hope you’ll visit throughout the coming days of Training Camp.
