Worship services are very public experiences within a church. As individuals, we often become comfortable with the style of worship that takes place within our own church. When exposed to alternate styles of music or expression, we sometimes become uncomfortable or even critical. It's as if everything has to be "just right" for us to "plug in" and participate. But God's interest in our worship is much more simple. He wired us from birth with a desire to spend time with Him through worship. He isn't concerned with most of the things that concern us as to how we worship.
In this series, Dr. Merritt tells us that the act of worship is not a religious ritual but is a personal act of love that deepens our relationship with our Creator. Discover what God really intended for this special expression of the relationship between Him and His children.
