What Can’t Be Stolen

So my friend Chris Macedo was sick while trying to lead the music portion of our worship service yesterday. He had the remnants of the flu/bronchitis bug that has been ravaging Charlotte and Fort Mill recently.

But he said the most interesting thing to the congregation as we began: “The bug has stolen my voice. But it can’t steal my worship.”

Think of all that tries to steal our worship:

  • Negativity
  • Complacency
  • Busy-ness
  • Sadness
  • Doubt
  • Lack of confidence
  • Sickness
  • Satan himself

Jesus put it this way: “The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

All those forces chip away at your soul in their attempts to steal your worship.

When they do, remember: they may steal my voice, but they can’t steal my worship.
