IS might be better.
Worship is Christ present for us…
A simple statement which most of us would accept without much fuss but I believe a dangerous one. It is always dangerous to separate Scripture from its message and truth, as if it were merely a means of conveyance. The truth of and in the Scriptures is Jesus Christ. Christ is the Word that speaks and what that Word speaks. We have the same problem with the Sacraments. When we view them merely as pipelines that deliver something to us, we miss the whole point of them. The Sacraments are Christ in our midst just as the Word is. It is through the Word and Sacraments that His claim to be Emmanuel is fulfilled and His promise not left to the emptiness of a notion or feeling or spiritual presence.
