TISCIONE: Worship for entertainment or edification?

(Continued)

You may have noticed that Dr. Ross’ long sentence defining worship has little in it about us. True worship is directed to God. It is for Him by His people and in accordance with His word. Jesus said that the Father is the one who seeks worshipers. Men seek something for themselves. God must reveal Himself so that we fall on our faces in humble reliance upon Him. Worship is not entertainment nor should it be designed as such. Christian worship that is biblical is the gathered people of God engaging with the holy One as an expression of their love for Him. This is what God made us for and He expects His people to be intentionally biblical about our worship of Him.

Lou Tiscione is pastor of Weatherford Presbyterian Church (PCA).
