Keep Wasting Your Time

There is a marvelous phrase used by the inimitable Marva Dawn. She says that worship is a “royal waste of time.” Of course, she is not referring to worship being purposeless, she is speaking of worship as something we do as a way of losing our lives (Mat. 10:39). Worship is royal because it invites us to the throne room of God. But worship is a waste of time because in the eyes of the world a) it is a worthless pursuit, but it b) causes us to keep heavenly time and forget earthly concerns.

A royal waste of time is what we need to do more not less. We need to keep wasting our sense of worthiness and gain more from the heavenly clock which calls us promptly to see God in the splendor of holiness.
