The essence of being so consumed with the songs and the worship experience that we become consumers rather then being ones who are being consumed by our passion and worship of God
Talk briefly about experience of worshippers preferences..... those who come because of style.... even leaders
What the bible says about being consumed (What our worship is like)
(comments after each one welcome)
Psalm 34: 9
O fear the Lord, you His saints [revere and worship Him]! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship Him with godly fear.
John 4: 24
God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).
Why do we have a religious language when we talk to God and another when we communicate normally.. Let's be real!
A worshippers Psalm
Psalm 63: 1-8
You, God, are my God,earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
David was aware of God constantly, A challenge to worship God at all times
