Hyde on Worship

“But worship is not about us and our particular tastes and preferences. It is about God. He taught His people this truth in the construction of the tabernacle. All this means that we cannot evaluate worship by the standards of the world. We crave entertainment. We have our Facebook pages, our Twitter accounts, our iPods full of our favorite songs, our favorite radio stations on presets in our cars, our email, which we access via our iPhones and Blackberrys, and so on. But God is not a commodity; He is not something to entertain us. He is not just another thing in a long line of things. He says the whole Lord’s Day is His day, and especially when we step into worship, He says, ‘Mine.'”

Daniel Hyde in God in Our Midst
