    “There was once a man named Job who lived in the land of Uz. He was blameless – a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil. He had seven sons and three daughters.

    Does Our Worship Please God?
    Series: Worship 101
    Matthew 15:7-8
     
    "You shall worship the LORD your God and Him only shall you serve."
     
    Matthew 15 "Then some Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying, why your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread? And He answered and said to them, and why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? For God said HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER, and HE WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER IS TO BE PUT TO DEATH. But you say, whoever shall say to his father or mother, anything of mine you might have been helped by has been given to God, he is not to honor his father or his mother. And thus, you invalidated the Word of God for the sake of your tradition." Now here it comes: "You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, this people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far away from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men."

    "You guys worship in vain."
     
    I. Worship That Pleases God Comes From Our Heart
     
    Some times church services are simply what we do on Sunday.
     
    Have you ever asked yourself the question
    DOES MY WORSHIP PLEASE GOD?
    DOES MY WORSHIP COME FROM MY HEART?
     
    "This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far away from me," But in vain do they worship me."
     
    "Any time you do that and you just go through the motions, and you just give Me lip service, but your heart is far away, that's vain worship
     
    II. Worship That Is Pleasing To God Is Full of Life
     
    Luke 15 where we find the story of the prodigal son, Jesus said, "There is more joy in heaven over 1 sinner who repents than 99 righteous people who need no repentance."
     
    “you are correct, we do not and let Me tell you what you do. You elevate the traditions of men above the Word of God. That's what you do."
     
    Do you ever do that - set aside the commandment of God to hold on to your tradition?

Because God is the best, High King over all the gods. In one hand he holds deep caves and caverns, in the other hand grasps high mountains. He made ocean – he owns it! His hands sculpted earth! So come, let us worship: bow before Him on your knees before God, who made us! Oh yes, he is our God, and we are the people of His pastures, the flock He feeds.” ~ Psalm 95: 1-7 (The Message)
