True Worship

Posted by in Uncategorized

Have we missed the point of worship?  Have we gone the way of the “Mc Church” rapidly serving millions with a trademark presentation of church?  Have we gotten so far away from worship that we can no longer “see God” in the worship?

Eph 5:18-20
…Be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Col 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God

  1. True Worship is Spirit Filled.
  2. True Worship is singing
    • Singing Psalms (Scripture)
    • Music in the Heart
  3. True Worship is Expressive
    • Gives Thanks
    • Reading the Word
  4. True Worship is God Centered
    • Instructions
    • Wisdom
    • Thankfulness

How far off are we in our “worship” when we over-focus on one element and do not follow the instructions and examples of the church.  Have we run so far from the rituals of “the church” that we have forgotten the true sense of worship? We sing songs, we pray we read scripture, we give, we do the things that are good… but do we worship?

As we prepare for tomorrow’s worship, let us not bog down in the trappings that man has put on it, let us return the focus of Worship to our Holy God.
