Our lead pastor shared a hard thought today in his message when he said, "Choosing convenience over obedience always leads to destruction." This is a tough morsel to chew on, but is completely accurate. This can obviously apply to many areas in our life, but it spurred me to think about the way that we worship God.
Are we choosing convenience over obedience in our worship? Are we doing what is easy for us or what is right? What do we need to obediently surrender so that we can worship in spirit and in truth?
God repeatedly tells us that there is no true worship without sacrifice. If we are searching for authentic, engaging worship we need to look first to our level of obedience and choose to take action. Waiting for a convenient time isn't a very effective method of obedience.
