I’m thinking right now that this is the possible theme for the summer session of Sunday morning class. Pastor suggested that we read a book called “Radical” by David Platt about a month and a half ago, and I have… oh, my!

In worship, reckless abandon is flipping the tables on what you think worship is and worshiping God the way God wants to be worshiped.

Reckless abandon says,

  • “I’m not ashamed of God, and will dance like David danced and not worry about those around me.”
  • “I will lift my hands when prompted by the Holy Spirit and not worry about what the guy sitting behind me thinks”.
  • “I will run to the front of the auditorium and fall on my face before God in front of the stage and totally abase myself so that God may be exalted”.
  • “I will think only of being with God and not be concerned with how well I sing, that I get the words to the song right, that I stand, sit or kneel because that’s what people expect”.
  • “I will die to myself so that I might live for Christ!”

Reckless abandon is the call of the humble, the duty of the called and act of the chosen.
