A friend posted this blog. He makes a great point about worship.
Unfortunately, many (most?) in the church miss the point that worship is the key. It’s isn’t just something that you do at the start of a church service to prepare you to hear a sermon.
Worship is the starting and ending point.
It IS the church service.
Our vision is far too limited. All too often, we think that our purpose is to evangelize … or to grow our church larger … or to defend the Bible … or to fight a moral issue … or to ___ (fill in the blank).
Worship is Key.
Worship is key to building the Kingdom. And it’s all about building the Kingdom. Yes, evangelism, church growth, defending doctrines, and fighting moral issues can be parts of building the Kingdom. But evangelism, church growth defending doctrines, and fighting moral issues are not, in and of themselves, building the Kingdom of God.
It’s all about building the Kingdom. And worship is key. Building the Kingdom of God flows out of worship.
Worship isn’t part of building the Kingdom of God. Worship is key to building the Kingdom of God.
