Praise and Worship Only?

But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. (John 4:23)

I remember when there wasn’t a Spotify, an iTunes, or a Pandora app. Heck, I remember when smartphones weren’t even a thing. Do I sound old yet? Listening to praise and worship music used to consist of the same 10-15 songs on repeat on the Christian radio station in my local area or the few songs I sang each week at church.

With the business card extended their way, I added that there was a site he could go to for help. They quickly declined my offer because “No thank you. We don’t live out here.” I reminded them that it was an online community and they responded “That’s okay. We already have a church.” It was as if they couldn’t hear the words coming out of my mouth, and I was stunned that my efforts to help their friend had fallen on deaf ears. As they walked away, I felt angry and offended. I muttered under my breath “Wow, I’m glad I’m not your friend. Too bad for him.” Continue reading “Falling on Deaf Ears”
