Liturgy means the form of worship, the order of service. We have liturgical choices before us today. That is, there are different directions our worship of God might take depending on whose lead we follow.
The first choice is the liturgy of Jesus Christ. His prescribed order of worship is that every day we love Him above all and our neighbor as ourselves. Since He is omnipresent, we can do everything we have to do in life in His presence. He would have this be our mindset and motivation as we undertake our everyday routines. Everyday activities therefore become worship through the way we do them.
The second choice would be the liturgies of churches. They profess to exist on Christ’s authority but they prescribe a very different sort of worship than His. They call you to come to their “houses of worship” as they call them. This occurs usually on Sunday mornings, but there can be some additional days and times. At these gatherings, there is a sequence of rituals that are followed. These usually include singing, praying, and listening to a sermon. As you see, this is radically different from the worship Jesus prescribes.
The third choice would be the liturgies of all the other religions of the world.
Which of these three kinds of liturgy strikes you as the one prescribed by God? Which of these liturgies do you practice?
The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church or any other group.
