Thought for the Day from Fred Barrett– Worship Isn’t Easy

lumbar

Religion makes demands on us in worship. Worship is not an easy thing. To sit and criticize while the minister pours out his own soul, to look on at the choir as you would at an opera chorus, to pass judgment on the service as you would on a play, that is not worship! To come to Church to see your friends and eager to gossip, that is not worship. When men worship, they not only fall on their knees, they fall on their faces before God. God takes hold of their soul and they take hold of His strength. In real worship the soul of man answers out of the depths the call of God from the heights. You cannot make worship just bright, brief, and breezy.
