Travis Ryan encourages reverence for God during worship
Riverside, Calif. (Dec. 7, 2016) – “My prayer today is that our worship of God would be real and honest; that it wouldn’t be caught up in the lights or the production,” Travis Ryan, a California Baptist University alumnus, told a chapel audience on Dec. 7. “He wants your heart, and He wants your attention…let’s be moved in our worship to give God our attention and affection. He deserves it.”
Ryan is a multi-Dove Award nominee, singer/writer and a senior worship pastor at LifePoint Church in Smyrna, Tennessee. Ryan led the chapel audience members in worship and spoke about the importance of genuine reverence toward God.
After reading Revelation 4 and describing God’s throne, Ryan told the audience that one way or another everyone will worship God.
“Did you see that picture (in Revelation 4)? Did you behold the glory of God?” Ryan said. “One day we all will give Him that attention, one day every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that He is Lord.”
Ryan encouraged the audience to stand and give glory and affection to God.
“Love always comes with a price. God himself sacrificed incredibly,” Ryan said. “God left all splendor and glory to put on human skin. That is what we celebrate at this time and in this season.”
