Getting The Most Out Of Worship

"Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.... Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name" (Psa.11:2 & 4).

I have heard that in many areas of life, there is a proportionality between what we "put into something" in relationship to what we "get out of it." In regard to what we get out of worship, I am envisioning a group of people leaving the church building after services. Perhaps some of them are reflecting on what they got out of worship that morning, and maybe they'll talk about it on the ride home. They may be reflecting... "Is that it?" "Did I miss something?" Is there some deep and insightful secret on how we can get more out of our worship services? Have we been affirmed by the message and moved by the praise involved in the singing? Perhaps some time during the week we might reflect and meditate on the service and even see if we can make some application of it in our lives. Although all of these things are important, I mean to get at something else... What really needs to happen in worship does not all lie within the quality of the preaching or singing, or even the friendliness of the congregation. The point I want to make is that what one gets out of worship, lies within the worshiper... The worshiper must change... This week I am going to use the Book of Isaiah, specifically 6:1-8, to get my message across. Isaiah saw something in these verses that changed his life forever. It may not do this for us, but it will hopefully give us some good food for thought when it comes to getting the most we can possibly get out of worship... I hope you will enjoy it, and by the way, I hope you enjoy worship...

Have a great start to your week. Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
