Want to enjoy worshipping God?
Step 1: understand… It’s not about you
Step 2: understand… It’s not about what pleases you
Step 3: understand… It’s not about what you take away from it, but what you bring to it.
Step 4: understand… It’s about you checking yourself at the door, and entering into the worship of God.
Step 5: understand… when you enter to worship, you are entering the Most Holy Place.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. -Hebrews- 10:19-25
Step 6: understand… Leaving worship you have been in the Most Holy Place. Through Jesus sacrifice you have drawn near to God. You have been cleansed of all sin because of that sacrifice, so you could draw near to God. The DAY is approaching and it is important to gather together and worship, encourage one another, and spur one another on toward love and good works.
