I recently attended an Arkansas Baptist State Convention Worship Leader's Roundtable to listen to Dr. Joe Crider from the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He asked us quite a few thought-provoking questions, but one that I appreciated the most was "Why do we gather on Sunday Morning to worship?" There were four points from our discussion that I believe can help us think about worship in an appropriate manner.
1. To Glorify God
2. To Proclaim The Mysteries Of The Gospel
3. To Respond To God's Revelation
4. To Step Into What Is Really Real
There is a lot to unpack throughout these different thoughts. I encourage you to stop by my office sometime so we can have a more in-depth conversation! Thanks for spending some time reflecting on the importance of worship within the context of the body of Christ!
