Discipline of Worship #1

Have you ever been to a party and completely ignored the host or guest of honor? Probably not because social etiquette teaches us that doing that would be rude. However, all too often we approach our worship preoccupied, self-focused or maybe with a bad attitude; and thus ignore the One we come to honor.

Worship is a discipline because we are easily tempted to neglect it. We’re tempted worship everything but God, our toys, work, money, friendships.  Just like we can drive on a mental autopilot and suddenly realize that we traveled great distances without noticing a single car or detail on the road, we can too easily worship in vain.  Sometimes it’s just lip service and meaningless. If we want worship that is more than going to church, singing songs or praying, we must be disciplined to keep our focus on the One who is truly worthy.
