Worshiping Worship

Although I don’t agree with much of the theology of Tim Challies, and have taken him to task before, he makes an excellent point about people looking for “great worship”.

We have defined worship incorrectly as a church. I will write more on that later for now, props Mr. Challies.

Although there are things that can be done to enhance corporate worship, there is a profound sense in which excellent worship cannot be attained merely by pursuing excellent worship. In the same way that, according to Jesus, you cannot find yourself until you lose yourself, so also you cannot find excellent corporate worship until you stop trying to find excellent corporate worship and pursue God himself. Despite the protestations, one sometimes wonders if we are beginning to worship worship rather than worship God.
