This really struck a chord with me, church. I have been there. I have shopped around for churches based on the quality of the music, the amount of expensive equipment they have, whether or not the pastor is a culturally hip dude, with no regard to the Christ centric nature of their ministry. If Jesus isn't my only priority going into worship, I am an idolator!
This way of thinking is so backwards. Our culture shops for churches like food off a menu! Choosing what satisfies them, not what's best for them. Self-centered church attendance is like worshipping Baal, Zeus, or a stick! We must keep our attention fixed on Christ and His given Holy Spirit of God! Christ-centered church is the only option for those seeking life in Christ! It almost seems like this should be painfully obvious doesn't it? How could it be so elusive and dangerous? The blind can never see what is before them, no matter how hard they wish to, they simply cannot, they are blind.
Pray with me brethren, that our worship be all about Jesus! We can't stipulate to God how, and by what circumstance, we will worship Him. All Christ, All the time! That's the only option. We must decrease and He must increase.
Eager, as always, to worship with you,
