Planned for God's Pleasure - Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren

Yesterday i was reading this book and God spoke so much to me.
So,i hope that He speak with you too ;D

Worship is a Lifestyle

Worship is far more than music.
For many people,worship is just a synonym for music.They say "at our church we have the worship first,and then the teaching".This is a big misunderstanding.Every part of a church service is an act of worship:praying,Scripture reading,singing,confession,silence,being still,listen to a sermon,taking notes,giving an offering,baptism,communion,singing a commitment card,ande even greeting others worshipers.
Actually worship predates music.Adam worshiped in Garden of Eden,but music isn't mentioned until Genesis 4:21 with the birth of Jubal.If worship were just music,then all who are nonmusical could never worship.Wroship is far more than music.
Even worse,"worship" is often misused to refer to a particular style of music: "first we sang a hymn,then a praise and wroship song."Or,"I like the fast praise songs but enjoy the slow worship songs the most."In this usage,if a song is fast or loud or uses bass instruments,it's considered "praise".But if it is slow and quiet and intimate,maybe accompanied by guitar,that's worship.This is a common misuse of the term "worship."
Wroship has nothing to do with the style or volume or speed of a song.God loves all kinds of music because He invented it all-fast and slow,loud and soft,old and new.You probably don't like it all,but God does! If it is offered to God in spirit and truth,it is an act of worship.
Christians often disagree over the style of music used in worship,passionately defending their preferred style as the most biblical or God-honoring.But there is no biblical style! There are no musical notes in the bible;we don't even have the instrument they used in the bible times.
Frankly,The music style you like best says more about you-your background and personality-than it does about God.One ethnic group's music can sound like noise to another.But God likes variety and enjoy it all.
There is no such thing as "Christian" music; there are only Christian lyrivs.It is the words make a song sacred,not the tune.There are no spiritual tunes.If I played a song for you without ,You'd have no way of knowing if it were a "christian" song.

Think about it,
God bless You more each day.
