Grief – An Act of Worship

Job’s expression of grief was itself an act of worship.  It doesn’t say that he grieved, and worshiped and then got over it. 

To grieve as a Christian is an act of worship because it is a statement of faith that one day things won’t be this way.  It’s a Romans 8 cry for Jesus to come back.  Underneath your grief is a tune or song that cries out “MARANATHA! – come put things back the way they were supposed to be!”

Underneath our grief is a cry for that day when we will enjoy sinless hearts and minds and disease free bodies.  That’s why you don’t need to be ashamed of grief.
