When We Worship Together...

"Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers [meeting] together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship."
~ A.W. Tozer

Did you get that? One hundred (or more or less) worshipers gathered together, each looking to Christ in their hearts. Those worshipers, by tuning themselves to Christ, are close in heart to one another.

This is one of the things that I adore most about Christian women conferences. Without fail, at some point during the numerous conferences I have attended, there has always been a moment when I've looked around the arena and plainly thought, "wow."

There is something magnificent about how God is able to pull women from different states, ethnicities, colors, and religious backgrounds, and weld them into one heart as they lift their hearts and hands in praise to Him.

Can you imagine how this glorifies Him? Can you imagine how much He adores to see His precious daughters joining together in praise of Him? Can you imagine how pleased He is to see a multitude of His female creation coming together to learn and worship Him together. This must please Him immensely.

If God could get goosebumps, I bet He would while listening to a multitude of His daughters lifting their voices to Him in unison.
I have been blessed to receive two complimentary tickets to the Imagine Women of Faith event here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from the Women of Faith Booksneeze blogger program. Next weekend, October 7-8th, my lovely mother and I are packing up the car for two fun-filled days at the Consul Energy Center here in Pittsburgh.

If you are within the vicinity of the Pittsburgh area and would like to attend, you can purchase your tickets here. And if you are attending the conference, could I have the privilege of meeting you? Just contact me using the "contact me" page at the top of my blog. I would love to meet some of my blog sisters in Christ!

And if you live outside of the Pittsburgh area, there are conferences being held all over the nation. Just go here to find the one nearest to you.

Have a most blessed day!

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us ~ Ephesians 3:20

What a great thought, I really like the Tozer quote you posted. Just to imagine that all around the world we are tuning into Christ and therefore in tune with each other!
