That means our worship today might be different in style than years ago, but it still is effective when we do it according to God’s word.
The true measuring rod for our worship should not be traditions, culture or experiences. The measuring rod for worship should always be God’s word.
It is possible to have a very exuberant emotional time of worship and for that type to go on for years.
It may have started out as a Bible based act of worship. Raising hands, shouting etc.
They do it because they know that God’s word has instances of all those.
All of that type were used in various forms of worship in the Bible. But over time, and generations, it can become a tradition. We do it because we’ve always done it. But you don’t know why you do it.
And when you do things without knowing why you do them, you have lost all meaning behind them.
That is why it is vital that each believer have a full understanding from God’s word about how, why and when we worship.
When we raise hands, we know it is an act of surrender to God. God I surrender, I’m yours.
