When worship is pretense …

It’s Sunday morning and you’re “in church.” The worship leader strums his guitar and launches into the first song …

If you had to sit and watch others sing through every song you usually sing but don’t really live out in your life outside the church sanctuary, would you do much singing on Sunday morning?

We don’t gather as the body of Christ on Sundays because we like to sing; we sing as one way of worshiping our heavenly Father. But how is it worship to sing to Him words that have no real truth about our actual relationship with Him?

“For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth,” John 4:24.

If you had to make some changes in your life so that your expression of worship matched how you really live, what changes would you make? When?
