Worship through Watching

“The eye is the lamp of the body. 
If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. …”
Matthew 6:22
Romans 12 is one of my favorite chapters of the Bible because it is a summation of chapters 1-11, and is a practical guide on how to make Jesus Christ the Lord of every area of life.  A worthy goal here is to aspire to be a Christian who lives like a Christian every day of his life!
Romans 12:1 tells me that to live a life of worship is to not just engage in ritual activity–perhaps in a Sunday worship service–but to involve your heart, mind, and will in living in obedience to God. 
About 5 years ago, my wife began a family tradition of watching the 2006 movie, The Nativity Story, each year around Christmas time.  With each viewing, I grow in appreciation for the Bible’s story of the birth of Jesus.  This well-done film really “humanizes” the characters of Mary, Joseph, and Elizabeth, as well as the wise men and shepherds.  Watching the beautifully powerful birth scene becomes an act of worship for me!
Merry Christmas!
