Today we sang a song in worship and it started me thinking.
When we go to church, are we coming as worshipers or art critics?
We often hear people complain about the church.
- It’s too formal
- It’s too informal
- The preaching is too long
- The preaching is not long enough
- They are too many hypocrites
- It does not meet my needs
- They only sing old hymns
- They never sing old hymns
On and on it goes.
Now I know church is important for us as individuals. We need a place where we can find answers to our questions, where we can feel loved and accepted, where we can be challenged and encouraged.
Church should be a place that meets our needs.
But I wonder if we have become so focused on ourselves, we forget what true worship is supposed to be about.
This song reminds me:
It’s all about you, Jesus!
I’ll bring You more than a song for a song in itself is not what You have required You search much deeper within…
