Leviticus 8-9

On the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel

It takes time to prepare for worship. This is true for the preacher, the music minister, and others who are guiding the service, but it takes time for the people to prepare as well. The vast majority of people simply show up to church on Sunday and expect to worship, perhaps this is why there is such a high level of dissatisfaction within many churches today, people are coming unprepared for worship. A worship service is an opportunity for outsiders to come and see what the Lord is doing, they are observers, and should always be made welcome. However, the worship service is a time to respond to the working of God in your life, that happened the week before. How has God spoken to you, what has the Lord lead you to do, how many people have you shared the light of Christ with or invited to come to your church? If you haven’t done any of that, all that is left is to criticize the show. Prepare yourself for worship, come ready to respond to God… not to be entertained by a specticle.
