Worship is God-centered and not man-centered. When our worship is to please God instead of ourselves, then only it will be acceptable to God. Worship to God is holy and sacred. We should not try to please and gratify ourselves when worshipping Him!

It is a wrong idea that attending worship is to “get something out of the service”, rather than to only give our worship to God. We must worship God according to what He says on how He is to be worshipped. We must worship God in spirit and in truth!!!

In this age, most of the worship are designed to appeal to our emotions and to entertain us. We must not forget that our worship service is to bring glory and honor to God only, but not to entertain ourselves.

In most of the worships today, we have become the spectators who are being entertained. This is a very disrespectful and demeaning act towards our God.

We should not be the spectators, because in worship it is God who is the spectator. Nowadays, people have the roles reversed. the worship service is made to entertain people to please themselves and not entertaining God to please Him.

Worship service should not become an entertaining performance with the performers receiving the praise instead of God. To show their appreciation, the congregation should respond with handclapping to the Lord but not to the speaker or the preacher. We should not assume that God will accept anything we offer and be glad about it.

Hebrews 13:15 says to “Offer the sacrifice of praise to God, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” During worship we are be the participants and not the observers. We must not please and entertain ourselves in the worship but we have to please God only.

In Galatians 1:10 the question is asked, ” For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
