Worshiping Your Audience of One
I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! (Psalm 34:1-3)
It’s an unfortunate reality in our culture today that church has become a spectator sport. After all, you go to a play or a concert to be entertained. And when you walk into most churches, you see a similar set up – seats, a stage, and a sound system.
Because of this, I think many in the church today today have the idea that those up on the stage are the performers, the congregation is the audience, and God is up in heaven directing. So the congregation’s role is just to observe and respond if the show is good. But if the show isn't good, then you can always leave and catch a different show next week at another church!
But that’s not what real worship is. In real worship, the members of the congregation are the performers and God is the audience. God is the one who listens to the praise that only you can give. He is your audience of one!
So next time you’re in church, remember that your role isn't to come and enjoy the performance, your role is to sing and worship your Heavenly Father!
Consider yourself to be a performer for God, your true audience of One.
