Don’t we all love to worship the Lord? I hope we do because He loves when we do. Formalism and worship are actually different. When we worship the Lord, there needs to be freedom, yet order.
Worship is not real quiet music while everyone is sitting absolutely still without a smile upon their pretty face. That’s not worship by far. Some people say and I have experienced it in my walk with the Lord, “Well that’s a dignified, orderly, and reverent service to the Lord.” And I have said this on numerous accounts out of love of course, “They don’t know the difference between worshiping the Lord and rigor-mortis.”
I encourage, when we study the Bible, we’ll find out that worship was marked with brightness, light, spontaneity, and joy. The early Christians had something that fire could not burn, that swords could not kill, that water could not drown, and jails or prisons could not hold. That is the power of the Holy Spirit:)
They knew, as we should know the holiness, the loveliness, and the glory of God in a life-changing way. They knew how to let the Holy Spirit work without the interference of the flesh.
2 Corinthians 3:17 say; “Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” Also I encourage you to read Psalm 5:7 and 29:2 that you may worship God in joy and truth. Have a blessed day.
