Well, we’ve all heard of the different worship styles wars: contemporary versus traditional, or charismatic versus non-charismatic, and so on. And then one can throw the Regulative Principle in the mix.
Now if I’m able to get a voice in in all this worship commotion, I’ll say that we need to let all of Scripture, both the Old and New Testaments, inform our worship, through the move of the Holy Spirit of worship.
We find lifting hands, kneeling, bowing, clapping, dancing, and so on, in praise and worship to God. But only a few churches engage in all of these today.
Is it possible that we might be putting out the Spirit’s fire in our worship gatherings because of our church cultures? Why were lifting hands and so on, present in praise and worship in the early days, but woefully missing in most of our churches today?
My vision of a worship service is so radically biblical!
