Day Seven – Unveiled Worship

Today’s Scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18 When Solomon built the temple, he intended it to be a permanent dwelling place for the Lord. It also became the focal point where the people could come together and worship. This temple was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, rebuilt by Zerubbabel, and enlarged by King Herod. In 70 AD the Romans converged on[…]

Day Six – Pure Worship

Today’s Scripture: John 4:24 A woman who was searching for a new church told me, “Worship at my old church has changed. I need to find another church with different/better worship.” I pondered her comment for a while and couldn’t help but wonder—what changes? Worship or the worshipper? Worship is an act of service we give to God. Worship isn’t[…]

Day Five – Intentional Worship

Today’s Scripture: 2 Kings 24:10-16, 25:8-9; Jeremiah 29:13-14 If we’re not careful, worship can become a routine rather than a heartfelt expression of our love and devotion to the Lord. We need to be intentional, not robotic. The Israelites had turned worship into an automated ritual. Over time, they even collected other gods and idols that pulled their devotion away[…]

Today’s Scripture: Psalms 100 I was speaking at a church and, a few minutes before the morning service began, the worship leader said, “Well, let’s go get the people warmed up for worship.” Warmed up? Why don’t we warm up before we show up? Maybe we modern-day worshippers need to learn a thing or two. In Bible days, as the[…]

Day Three – Veiled Worship

Today’s Scripture: 1 Kings 5:1-18 When Solomon became king, he built a temple as a permanent dwelling for God’s Presence. The temple was spectacular. It was a 2,700-square-foot structure that took seven years to build. Solomon drafted tens of thousands of men to assist with the construction of this magnificent edifice. They shipped in cedar from Lebanon, hand-carved the wood,[…]

Day Two – Portable Worship

Today’s Scripture: 1 Samuel 5-6 Before Solomon’s temple was constructed, people built altars where they would worship and call on the name of the Lord. For example, Noah erected an altar when he exited the ark (see Gen. 8:20). Abram built one when God spoke to him about the promised land (see Gen. 12:7). Gideon built an altar when the[…]

Day One – Worship in a Box

Today’s Scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:16 If you were to ask someone how they would define worship, chances are the response would pertain to music and praise. Often when we hear someone say, “Wow, worship in church was fantastic this morning!” they’re usually referring to the music, the leader, the vocals, and the instruments. Some people look at worship like a[…]
