Authentic Worship

We have to become better communicators of the gospel of Christ. No matter the size or location of our local churches, Jesus is still going to send us people who need ministering to. Some people out there are going to come looking for answers, encouragement, prayers or a touch of the divine. And when they do walk into our doors, they better catch us in an atmosphere of authentic worship and heartfelt communion with God.

A great majority of these people didn’t come to watch singers belt out impossible notes that would jeopardize the careers of Sarah Geronimo or the Linkin Park. Neither did they come to hear an eloquent deliberation of pop psychology or dry theology. Instead, they came expecting to find Jesus in our midst.

But is Jesus really that visible in our gatherings? Do people find Him the moment they walk into our worship centers? We hope so. We hope we don’t bury Him beneath our sophisticated audio-visuals and boisterous music that some often mistake for the presence of Christ.
