FORM & FASHION OR REAL & PASSION

FORM & FASHION OR REAL & PASSION

1 samuel 16_7

Is your praise form and fashion or real and passion?

When you praise God is your praise birthed from the depths of your heart or is it from your lips only?

Is your praise authentic or is it a puppet-like response because it is “the thing to do” in a worship service or because the pastor, moderator, or worship leader tells you to praise God? 

When you praise God is your mind focused on Him or is it miles away, focused on other people, places or things?

As you praise, does God look at you and say (your name) honors me with his/her lips but his/her heart is far from me, or is He pleased because you offer Him a genuine sacrifice?

Is your praise only a public performance before an audience of many but never a private demonstration before an audience of one, the One?

Is your praise form and fashion or real and passion?

God desires the latter.

SELAH.
