I’ve been reading a book by Bob Kauflin entitled, Worship Matters: Leading Others to Encounter the Greatness of God. It’s a great book, and I have found it very edifying.
I just finished chapter 17, in which Kauflin lists several ways that corporate worship ought to impact our daily lives. Is your personal time of worship and your presence in corporate worship having these effects on your life?
Worshiping God should make us humble. Contemplating God’s greatness helps us see ourselves appropriately. Fixing our eyes on God will keep us from fixing our eyes on ourselves.
Worshiping God should make us secure. We sing and meditate on God’s sovereignty, and His love for us, and it’s a reminder that I have no reason to worry.
Worshiping God should make us grateful. As we contemplate God’s goodness to us in the Gospel, how can we not be grateful?
Worshiping God should make us holy. We stand in awe of God’s holiness, and we want to be like Him.
Worshiping God should make us loving. God’s love for us changes us into loving people.
Worshiping God should make us mission-minded. This Good News is too Good to keep to ourselves!
 I’ve used Kauflin’s headings and then summarized in my own words.
The purpose of our church blog is to serve the overall mission of our church: to delight in the beauty of God's greatness,
