Scriptures: John 4:19-24, Ecclesiastes 3:11, Hebrews 12:28, Isaiah 29:13
Everyone in the world worships something. You can call yourself “secular”. You can call yourself “anti-religious”, but everyone in this world values something, so highly, that they build their entire lives around it. Many times in the church we get caught up in the style or place of worship. Dr. Merritt's message teaches that God is not concerned with where, when or even the way you worship. What concerns God is the substance of your worship.
"Real worship is not a matter of style. It is a matter of substance. What matters in worship most to God is not what it looks like or sounds like on the outside as much as what is taking place on the inside of the heart." --Dr. Merritt
