I never tire of seeing this video…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kerMm0HG1mk
The most impactful thing about this scene is NOT THAT the FATHER picked up his son…everyone expects that!
It is the MOMENT the SON sees his DAD! I bet he did not even remember getting out of his chair… or running across the room… it probably even took him a while to realize he was sobbing. But I guarantee he was aware of what was going on the INSTANT his dad picked him up!
The son only knew he wanted to be held by his father. He was so focused on his dad that he did not care who saw him run, sob or jump into his dad’s arms…….
GREAT PICTURE OF WORSHIP!
“Worship can’t help overflowing from a passionate heart. Real worship is grounded in truth but involves deeply felt emotion. Intense longing for the nearness of God will express itself irrepressibly in worship.” “Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts!” (Ps 65:4).
