The Elders are reading a book together titled Worship Matters by Bob Kauflin. I must admit I wasn’t thrilled about reading it but God is using it to teach me and change my heart. Here are some things that the Lord is impressing upon me.
-Worship isn’t primarily about music, techniques, liturgies, songs, or methodologies. It is about my heart. It is about who I love more than anything else, the Lord Jesus Christ.
-All my life I have seen and experienced “worship wars”. People argue over music selection, styles, drums, and just how loud the volume is. Most of the conflicts stem from the war that rages within these people on the inside. My greatest challenge is preparing my heart before service.
-Worship matters. It matters to God because He is the one worthy of all worship. It matters to us because worshipping God is the very reason we were created.
Too many times there is a disconnect between the God we worship on Sunday and the One we follow during the week. Worship Matters. Let’s prepare our hearts each day to bring honor and worship to our Lord.
