What's at stake in our worship? Everything. Worship is the dangerous act of waking up to God and God's purposes in the world. But something has gone wrong with our worship. Too often worship has become a place of safety and complacency, a narrowly private experience in which solitary individuals only express their personal adoration. Even when we gather corporately, we often close our eyes to those around us, focusing on God but ignoring our neighbor. But true biblical worship does not merely point us upward—it should turn us outward as well. In this prophetic wake-up call for the contemporary church, pastor Mark Labberton reconnects Christian worship with biblical justice. From beginning to end, worship must pursue justice and seek righteousness, translating into transformed lives that care for the poor and the oppressed. Labberton shows how to move beyond the comfort of safe worship to authentic worship that is awake to the needs of the world.

This book was lifechanging for me. It forced me to think and immediately act on the importance of serving God through serving the poor and others experiencing injustice in our world. Citește recenzia completă

Warning! The Spirit of God might use this book to change your life. A prophetic, passionate and reasonable call to the church (right or left) to make every act, an act of worship. It is a call from comfort to faith, and begins to tune your heart to the heart of God. Citește recenzia completă
