The Heart of Worship: #5 Overcoming the Barriers to Worship (2). I John 4:18 & Matthew 22:37. There are barriers that keep us from experiencing the heart of worship. One is having a false image of God that leads us to fear Him. Just as the blood of Jesus supernaturally washes away your guilt, there is something that can supernaturally wash away you fear: God’s love. If you have a wrong image of God, it is because you have never realized just how much God loves you. Another barrier is the fickleness of our feelings. Too often we tend to respond to God based on how we feel. At the heart of worship is a transformation of your thought life.
The Heart of Worship Series : To Martha, worried and fussing over many pressing things, our Lord said, “…only a few things are necessary, really only one.” Luke 10:41. Worship is that one essential thing. Many of us are like Martha, distracted and too busy to sit at the Savior’s feet. The hectic pace of life only elevates the importance of active deliberate worship. In this sermon series, The Heart of Worship, Pastor Barry carefully and clearly sets forth the principles of worship – what it is, why it is so important, and how to do it in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Blessing flow from authentic worship, for it is only in worshipping our Lord Jesus that we can both plumb the depths and explore the heights of the abundant life our Lord makes possible.
