I really like Rob Rash’s writing style. He is funny, but makes me think. Here is a great post on Worshiping in Spirit and Truth. It seems that he had been to some of our church services;) Here are a few highlights that I really enjoyed from the post. Make sure you read the entire post…we have to get this right in the Church!
You can split the church right down the middle…
On the one side you have ‘those‘ people. You know, the ones that get all emotional and cry all the time. They have a little bounce to their step and are prone to raise their hands and say ‘Glory, Hallelujah‘ every five minutes.
We might even consider them a bit crazy.
On the other side you have ‘those other‘ people. The ones that haven’t shed a tear since their birth and carry a 25 pound King James. They have every book of the bible memorized, are annoyed when the service runs long, and appreciate the order of service printed in the bulletin.
We’d probably call them spiritual killjoys.
Like Peanut Butter and Pickles
Some things were just meant to go together while other things simply were not. Unless your a pregnant lady, peanut butter and pickles probably sounds gross. They just don’t go well together. But peanut butter and jelly? Well that’s a match made in heaven.
Our worship, needs to be like peanut butter and jelly. It needs to have a solid balance between both spirit and truth. We cannot allow our worship fo God to lean too far in either direction, otherwise we might miss out on all that worship should and could be. It needs to be both.
