When we come together in the corporate sense to a church service, we must remember — It is not made up of AUDIENCE, PERFORMERS, and DIRECTORS. It is not a show and was never meant to be a show.
We get it wrong so often, WE are not the AUDIENCE, God is!
Here are a few bullet points from today’s talk on WORSHIP.
When I think about WHO GOD IS AND WHAT HE’s Done?
- I have only ONE RESPONSE.
- That response is not just 20 minutes of song, but my very life!
MY ONLY REASONABLE RESPONSE IS WORSHIP
Hebrews 12:28-29 …since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe . . .
Thoughts: When is the last time you’ve been speechless before the presence of God? When you have been overwhelmed by His presence — because He is so big and so good and so loving and so holy and so pure and so righteous?
Remember, God gives someone righteousness who is like filthy rags. (Isaiah 64:6) He (GOD) is our AUDIENCE of ONE and we worship Him with REVERENCE AND AWE!
. . . for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29
