Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing worse than a dry, boring, or poorly done worship service. God wants us to worship Him with excellence. But if the service, or the sermon, or the music, or the personalities, or the experience is what is center stage–if they are the draw–we are missing something. Life has plenty of entertainment, distractions, and shows. But to meet Jesus, to see the Father, to encounter the Spirit. To be caught up in the embrace of His grace, nourished by His truth, and to be directed by His love… that is something else.
