Worship Services

Worship Services”

Have you ever thought about how many have designed worship services today to please men? God is to be the object of our worship. Worship services should be designed to please God and not men. The only way we can know what God wants us to do in worship is to go to His Word. In  1 Corinthians 2:11, we read, “For who among men knoweth the things of man, which is in him? Even so the things of God none knoweth, save the Spirit of God.”  This passage proves to us that no one can know what God thinks. We cannot know what another man thinks unless he tells us his thoughts. So, it is with the Lord. God only tells us what pleases Him through the Bible. Our worship services should not be a combination of what man wants and what God wants. That is disrespectful to God.

Our worship services should be totally in line with what God desires. We can only know what He desires in the form of worship by reading His Word. Jesus said in John 4:24, “God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  When we read and study the New Testament, we find that the early Christians participated in five acts of worship as commanded by God. Those acts of worship include: taking the Lord’s Supper, giving as we have prospered, singing unto the Lord, praying to God, and preaching His word to others. It is amazing how many today have added all kinds of things to the worship services. Things that they find pleasing to them. They never think about what pleases God.

Our plea is to get BACK TO THE BIBLE in worship and all things. “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord.”
