Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Worship as Drama

Last week I heard of two scenarios in which worship is analyzed as drama:

In worldly worship:
the performers are the worship leaders
the audience is the congregation
and success is measured by how the “audience” is satisfied.

In real worship:
the performers are the congregation
the audience is God
the prompters are the worship leaders
the director is the Holy Spirit
and the aim is to please God, the Audience of One.

What do you think?  Is God pleased with our worship?

    God is NOT pleased when we have so many things whirling around in our minds while singing songs of adoration. When we are not focused solely on God as the words flow out of our mouth He sees the hypocrisy.. Yes, we do measure the success of our worship by how satisfied we feel. i.e.,” I don’t like the songs they chose. She was singing off-key. They could have dressed more appropriately. It is time to stop..I am tired of standing.” “As in water face reflects face, So a man’s heart reveals the man.” Prov 27:19 Ouch! That hurts!

    • Thanks, Sue. Yes, it’s too easy to switch into auto-pilot when singing to the Lord. How must He feel?
