Matthew 15:8-9 EMTV
'These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and they honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me. 9And in vain they worship Me …
Psalms 111:1-3 GNB
Praise the LORD! With all my heart I will thank the LORD in the assembly of his people. 2How wonderful are the things the LORD does! All who are delighted with them want to understand them. 3All he does is full of honor and majesty; his righteousness is eternal.
Contrast the two sets of verses above. How are these two people different in their approach to worship?
Which is your own worship experience most like – especially when you assemble with your church family to worship?
What do you need to do personally to offer God the worship He deserves and desires?
Pray for yourself and our church – that we would offer Him sincere, heartfelt, worship that honors and pleases Him, especially when we come together to worship Him as the church.
