woe of worship

"The Chase" triptych

Have you had people you felt had a great God relationship only to later see them become very misdirected?

It’s made me wary and why I like variety in teachers and devotionals but look for further wisdom in God’s Word.

The groups in Jesus time, Scribes, Pharisees, Teachers of the Law and Jesus’ followers, ALL had different viewpoints. They argeed on some things, but were not open to finding truth together.

Some have a lot of knowledge but what about personal experience?

Isaiah 29:13-

The Lord says:

“These people come near to me with their mouth
and honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me
is made up only of rules taught by men.”

I’m feeling worship should be very Spirit led, personal and even in corporate settings, done with inner abandon…..like a child!

    I agree totally and that’s what I love about our little church. We not only worship as the Spirit leads, but we delve into Scripture every week and let the Spirit teach us. I LOVE reading God’s Word every week, and letting the discussions go where they may. Different translations add to our discussions, but it is the Spirit that leads our morning as we (in your words) find truth together. Our worship time is full of meaningful songs that glorify God and bring us to face to face with Him as we each do our own thing. Sometimes small is better…I don’t think this format could work in a large group. It’s not for everyone, but for me, I don’t think I could ever go back to traditional church.

  2. Great post. I also like LInda’s description above. That is how the church is supposed to work. That’s very close to the New Testament example. I’m still in more or less “traditional” church, but I tend to worship with abandon, not caring what anyone thinks. If I want to jump up and down, I’ll jump up and down. I don’t care what I look like. I’m very glad I found this blog.
