Pure Worship and Christopher Duffley

There is so much these days that is posted on Facebook that one can really be overwhelmed by it all.  There just is no time to look at everything and of course, it's not necessary.....    
But there are those times that the Holy Spirit of God whispers, "Stop and look." So I did...and what I experienced was a heart of worship so pure that God and Jesus must have had front row seats and their angels must have filled the room!
It made me pause - take time out - to have a "selah" moment - to reflect on what is true worship....I'm not sure I can truly define it, but only to say that it is not what one does, but the very spirit of God rising out of a pure and holy vessel....a broken or weak vessel.  It is the Holy Spirit in a person communing with God Himself in Heaven....It is Heaven coming to earth....the Spirit of God reaching to Heaven...and the two meet on the earth.  Oh my!  THAT IS THE BLESSEDNESS OF HIS GLORY!
Christopher Duffley is both blind and autistic....yet when he sings, "Open the eyes of my heart, Lord; Open the eyes of my heart.  I want to see You....."....Heaven, itself, comes down to meet earth.

For it really does not matter how man may judge our "talent"....because what really matters is our heart before Him. God wrote in His Word that He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise...The Amplified version writes it this way: "[This is] because the foolish thing [that has its source in] God is wiser than men, and the weak thing [that springs] from God is stronger than men....[No] for God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame." (I Cor. 1: 25, 27)
Oh be blessed....and enter into worship which is pure and holy....unadulterated, uncluttered....weak in the flesh/in the eyes of man, but strong and mighty in God.
Sing Christopher!  Sing!  For we are in such need of vessels such as you!


  1. I was so blessed by that post as well! Really puts things in perspective.

  2. Dear Saundra....There are times, I believe, when God brings us back to the Babe in a manger....Thank you for writing! Blessings! Crista~
