Where Is The Right Place To Worship?


Where Is The Right Place To Worship? That is what Dr. Gibb Wood preached about every 6 months while we were stationed in Germany with the Air Force. “Such a simple task” he would say “that Christians get wrong every day.” The reasons were simple… they look for a place to go to Church, and not a place to worship God. I echo those words in my ministry as I speak with people about going to church because so many people have so many different reasons why and where to go to church. Some may choose a church based on their children’s ministry, they want their kids to have a good time; others choose a church because they want to have a good time! Some like a small church while others like to get lost in the crowd of a large church. Many go because the Pastor is a good speaker; but none of these answer:

“Where is the right place to worship?”

Psalm 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. [3] Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. [4] One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. [5] I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

A Church should be where people come prepared to worship God. Doing so through hymns, songs and spiritual songs; in fellowship with the brethren and through their offering. Preaching and programs are a perk and not a part of worship. At a solid fundamental Baptist Church they should try to have a full opportunity for people to come, lifting their voices in praise and worship through the traditional hymns. To have a truly honored time with the Lord combined with people seeking to increase their faith by having a stronger walk with God. Beyond that, through preaching; to have a better understanding of the word of God by challenging believers to get into their Bible.  Each service is a continuance of the next as the message of salvation and God’s love is proclaimed. 

In short: Do you go to a church where you leave different than you came?
