They turn their services into musical displays, and their sermons into political harangues or philosophical essays. In fact, they exchange the temple for the theater, and turn ministers of God into actors, whose business it is to amuse men. Charles Spurgeon spoke those words more than a century ago. Clearly, worshiping God the wrong way isn’t a new phenomenon.
It’s been said . . . if you want to know what you love most if you want to find out what you really worship think about . . . well . . . what you think about. Where does your mind wander when you have a free moment? When the paycheck comes, how do you dream of spending it? What drives you what are you passionate about?
It’s natural to think of worship only in terms of religion . . . worshiping God. But fact is, people can and often do devote enormous time, money, physical effort, and mental energy to people and things . . . in effect, worshiping them as a way of life . . . instead of God God alone.
You know what it’s like when a dozen different tasks need your attention . . . and need it now. Think about how that relates to your worship. How disciplined are you in keeping the jumble of daily lifeyour career, family activities, a favorite pastimefrom hindering deep, ongoing communion with the Lord?
