Tomorrow’s Sunday School lesson for which I am preparing to lead is entitled: The Decision Dare. And I am questioning myself do I dare put forth all my notes for discussion.
For my question: I am wondering have we done the church and possibly the world an injustice, damage even, by fostering the idea that worship is coming to church participating in singing and listening to a preacher? Is that worship? Really what is worship?
First we know worship must have an object to either receive the worship or at least something to which we give it. Still what is worship? And what are we giving to this something in worship?
We walk in. Sit down. Stand up. We sing a few songs. We sit down.We pass the plate. We throw in some money. We stand up. We shake hands. We sing some more. We sit down. We listen to a message. We sing another song. We go home. Is that worship?
We do this once a week. Some twice a week and some fanatics (of which I am one, for the most part) do it three times a week. Is that as often as worship occurs? Is that as often as GOD deserves? Is He pleased with that? Are you?
Happy Saturday, my Friends.
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
