The Heart Of The Matter

January 23 
Daily Reading – Genesis 46-48 / Matthew 15:1-20

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    There’s a lot of showiness in many churches today. I’m not saying it’s all bad or carnal. However, I’m not saying it’s all God honoring either. You can put on a great production, have it all sound good, even call the name of Jesus from time to time, and yet not honor God. Worship is not about the professionalism of the show; worship is about the purpose of the heart.

    This week many who read this will attend what’s called a Worship Service. However we must remember, worship is not about how well you sing or how many times you say amen. For it to be a genuine worship service you need to draw near to God with your heart.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  How can your worship of God today
prepare you to better worship God this Sunday?
