Day 86/365

(Jesus speaking) “Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.” (Mat ‭11:28‬)


Whenever I hear that I think of Matt Redman’s classic song, “The Heart of Worship” such beautiful words and I wondered at the story behind them...


“I'm coming back to the heart of worship And it's all about You It's all about You, Jesus I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it When it's all about You

It's all about You, Jesus”


The song dates back to the late 1990s, born from a period of apathy within Matt’s home church, Soul Survivor, in Watford, England.


“There was a dynamic missing, so the pastor did a pretty brave thing,” he recalls. “He decided to get rid of the sound system and band for a season, and we gathered together with just our voices. His point was that we’d lost our way in worship, and the way to get back to the heart would be to strip everything away.” Reminding his church family to be producers in worship, not just consumers, the pastor, Mike Pilavachi, asked, “When you come through the doors on a Sunday, what are you bringing as your offering to God?” (Crosswalk.com)


We have run into false theology, we have run into "churchianity" and human interpretations, and a hundred other follies, but friends, it is a perfectly lovely and refreshing thing to get back to Jesus. (John G. Lake)


“Return to me, and I will return to you,“ says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. (Zec 1:3‬) ❤️
