Real or Routine?

We are continuing the series we started last week on What the Bible Teaches About Worship.  Last week we talked about that fact that worship is first and foremost an encounter with the living and holy God.  This week we will discuss fact #2:

Worship is only as real as the involvement of those participating. 

In the book of Leviticus we read about the many rituals that the Israelites were to perform.

The LORD gave these instruction to Moses on Mount Sinai when he commanded the Israelites to present their offerings to the LORD in the wilderness of Sinai.  Leviticus 7:38

All these rituals were meant to teach the people valuable lessons.  But over time, the people became indifferent.  The rituals became more about routine and less about God.  

Have your church worship services become dry?  What about your own personal worship time?  Maybe it's because our worship has become more of a routine than authentic worship.  

Why do you worship the way you do?  If you feel like you are just going through the motions with your worship, try rediscovering the meaning and purpose behind your rituals.  Then your worship will be revitalized.

Many blessings,

  1. I have seen people mimic others in their worship. They will move the same, make the same 'sounds,' etc. I don't want to do that. I don't want to mimic others. I don't want it to be dry or fake. I want true, pure worship. I want my worship to God to be what He wants.
