KEEP IT REAL

Isaiah 29:13

 

The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught

 

LESSON

 

The Lord had observed that the people of Jerusalem were going through the motions of worship without a vital, daily relationship of trust and obedience with Him. Their worship was a matter of traditional ritual observance, rather than a heartfelt desire to interact with Him.

Lip service only is an offense to God. Because it is worthless. God the Spirit cannot be satisfied with things; he asks for spirit, for emotion, affection, thankfulness, and trust. “Voice and nothing else” must be mockery to him who can only heed a voice when the heart speaks by means of it.

What makes our worship worthless and meaningless? How can our worship become a genuine encounter with God? Worship can either be the previews or it can be the feature presentation – make it the feature presentation.

 

Memory Verse: 1 John 2:4
