Another Reason I Love My Wife

My wife is a 3G woman—godly, gorgeous and goofy. All the things that I could ever want in a woman are wrapped up in the wonder of who she is. Here’s something she just passed on to me from her reading this weekend. We need more hearts like Tozer and my wife for the worship of the living God.

Worship: God Listens

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.              –Psalm 95:1-2

What are we going to do about this awesome, beautiful worship that God calls for? I would rather worship God than do any other thing I know of in all this wide world.

I would not even attempt to tell you how many hymnbooks are piled up in my study. I cannot sing a lick, but that is nobody’s business. God thinks I am an opera star!

God listens while I sing to Him the old French hymns in translation, the old Latin hymns in translation. God listens while I sing the old Greek hymns from the Eastern church as well as the beautiful psalms done in meter and some of the simpler songs of Watts and Wesley and the rest.

I mean it when I say that I would rather worship God than to do anything else.
—A.W. Tozer, Whatever Happened to Worship?, 18.
