time zones

Have you ever been to a sporting event and watched the crowd do the "wave"? Or have you ever watched this on television? Row by row of people just stand up and slowly raise their hands in the air and gradually sit back down. It imitates a rolling wave in the ocean.

I had a similar image in my mind this morning during church service. As the sanctuary lifts their voices in praise, raises their hands in worship, and clap for the Most High God; this action is repeated all around the world hour by hour. Christians all around the world live in different time zones. Church starts on the other side of the world hours before my service begins. Hour by hour a wave of praise is sent to magnify our Savior. This vision just brought chills to my spine.
