When God actually shows up in worship, do not be afraid

Luke 1:11-16 (An angel appears to Zechariah while he is in the Temple)

There appeared to him an angel of the Lord, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zechariah saw him, he was terrified; and fear overwhelmed him. But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you will name him John. You will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. Even before his birth he will be filled with the Holy Spirit."

Reflect: Do you actually expect to encounter God when you come to church? What might happen if you did?
