ARE WE SHUTTING PEOPLE OUT OF HIS PRESENCE?

I have been asking myself and the Lord lately, what is the best way to do church? What is the best way to do worship? We all have our traditional preferences, but we need to ask ourselves, are people connecting with what we are doing? Are we providing an atmosphere that encourages a connection that leads to an encounter? I mean, really, what should church look like? What should worship look like? I think the Lord appreciates this kind of open and honest dialogue.

Jesus was very well known for disrupting atmospheres that shut people out of the Presence and prevented connection.

Jesus was very well known for disrupting atmospheres that shut people out of the Presence and prevented connection. In Matthew 23:15 Jesus warns the against the process of reproducing non-fruit bearing tradition. I encourage you this week, explore the "why" part of what we do in this thing we call worship. Ask God what He would change about the atmosphere we are creating.
