Worship in Spirit and Truth

I’ve been reading about worship in a book written by Brian Doerksen.   Brian has written music such as “To the River“, “As for Me and My House” and “Come, Now is the Time to Worship“.   His songs have caught on, traveled around the globe, been translated into many languages.

This quote by him, caught my attention “When we flatter someone, we are just saying what we think he or she wants to hear so that we can get something back” (see Psalm 78:36-37).  Doerksen denounces this as hollow “religious” worship and calls us to a worship saturated with a spirit of humility and honesty.

About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
