Worship Consumers?

As followers of Christ, have we focused on the excellency of our offering more than the brokenness? Worship is not pretty. Surrender is not glamorous. Worship begins at the cross and is expressed in a focused life. We cannot just sing about the greatness of God – we must feel his greatness. We cannot just say we love Him – we must love Him. We cannot simply say…we must be.

All of us look forward to cool “worship experiences”, or “worship concerts”, where there is a gifted worship leader leading great songs and excellent music. It is entertaining, emotional, and fun. This can be a great thing, but if we are not actually loving God than it is pointless. If the band is tight, the songs are catchy, but our hearts are cold towards glorious Truth, we need an awakening.

“Lord, make me a true lover of You today. Keep me from just retaining information and being able to say profound things about you, but have coldness  in my heart. Help me be consumed by You.”
