Is Worship about YOU?

Does your worship experience depend on what YOU will experience personally during the worship service? Do you have the preconceived notion that worship should make YOU feel better when you leave? If youíre having a bad morning, do you think that God will give YOU an excused absence, much as a professor in a class? If what YOU feel is your definition of true worship, then perhaps YOU should learn about true worship. Worship is for God alone, not YOU. Itís not dependent on your emotional state, the performance of the praise team, or a moving sermon from the pastor. None of these things should play a part. Yet how many times do we become the panel of judges holding up a score card at the end of a service? We base our judgment on what we get personally, instead of what we have given without reservation without thought of what we will receive. Change the object of your worship service to GOD, not you.
