We have to ask ourselves a question this morning. What is our whole purpose for coming to church this morning? Are we here to get something from God, or are we here to give something to God?
What kind of worship experience are most people having on any given Sunday morning?
God doesn’t meet with us when our lives are filled with strife.
(v.1-3a) The sin in our lives keeps us from experiencing God to our fullest extent.
Many of us if we are honest with God and ourselves have deep disappointment with God.
He’s not come through like you want Him to. He has not answered prayer they way you think He should. That feeling when you open God’s word and it’s so dry is real. That sense that you have that God is not meeting with you may be real. Sometimes we walk away from church on Sunday morning and we haven’t meet with God. Have you ever got to the door and couldn’t remember what the preacher preached about? You can’t meet with God here in the building and walk out the same way you walked in.
Sometimes God ignores our worship.
Many people who go to church are just going through the motions. Butt in right place, holding right book, signing the right hymns without the right results.
Why God ignores our worship is found in Verse 3b.
People have everything their hearts desire and feel no need for God. We come to church with our life so full of business burdened down with the worry of how we’re going to get everything done. Some people believe the prosperity we experience here in America is a result of the blessings of God, but I disagree. We have so much apathy in the Western world because we have all our needs meet. SELFISHNESS is the problem. Our lives are so loaded down with things to do money to make, fun to have that we don’t have
