John 4:24 KJV God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
It takes only men of the Spirit to understand true worship, which is God worship. Worship not based on facts but the Truth which is the Christ.
John 3:6 KJV That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
The flesh is based on facts, things seen, while the Spirit is based on the Truth.
Without an encounter with the Spirit, you cannot worship God aright.
True worshippers don’t focus on the performances and the environment in worship. Worship should flow from our spirit, irrespective of the complementary elements. These complementary elements; instruments, professional worship leader and perfect worship environment when focused becomes a lie and conditional worship masked as true worship. Complementary elements when majored on makes your heart handicap leaning on the crutches of the complementary elements.
If you find it difficult to worship without complementary elements. Your personal worship will be very poor. You can’t have the instrumentalists around in your home. Many of these complementary elements are only available in corporate worship.
Remember that Love is a very good motivator. If you don’t love the Lord, you won’t be committed to worshipping Him irrespective of what surrounds you.
Worship isn’t an appreciation but an obligation.
Let us pray: Father, give me the true heart of worship.
