Book Recommendation!

Posted by Scott on July 7, 2008

I am currently reading through Jeremiah Burroughs’ “Gospel Worship” first published in 1648.  For anyone not satisfied with your churches worship experiences, for a church worship leader, or a layman wanting to grow deeper in what true worship is this book is a must read.  I have thoroughly enjoyed what I have read so far.

God does not have to write down every do and don’t in the Bible.  He has put forth in His word enough for us to discover His mind.  If we are studying His word on a daily basis we will know the mind of God and thus understand what He expects from His people without it being spelled out within His word.  The excuse that the Bible does not directly say anything about certain subjects does not mean we are excused to do whatever however we please.  God has  given us enough information for us to make the right choices in accordance with His word.  This is evident as you will discover from God’s dealing with Aaron’s two newly Priest sons.  On their first temple worship experience they tried to worship with “strange fire” and God took them immediately by fire.  This is how serious God feels about worship to Him. 

Many churches today feel that they can worship ever how they feel like worshipping because they think it does not matter to God as long as it is for Him.  I have news for anyone who thinks that way…God does care how you worship Him and much of today’s worship is not pleasing to Him.

Read with anticipation of understanding what God is truly looking for is the real Gospel Worship.

    dear loving Brother Scott,
    Eventhough i read almost all posts u do i can’t make any comment on it. I think the reason u r thinking and writing in an American back ground (where i have got nothing to comment).
    I like to request you pls do think and write something for your subscribers from other parts of the globe as well.
    then there will be points we can pray,share,communicate, help each others to be more closer to the Word of God no matter from where they are.
    praying for you, ur family and ur missions

    Dear Brother Tharian,

    It is good to hear from you again from Saudi Arabia. Just keep reading the blog and another post will come up soon that may edify your walk with Christ. I stopped my studies in Psalm for a while as I just finished a fairly extensive study in the Gospel of John. It was great.

    At the moment my personal post are not forthcoming as fast because I have been reading a few books as well. This one recommended in this post is terrific, but requires a great deal of concentration when reading. Also, I am not studying in 1 & 2 Timothy. I will eventually get back to the book of Psalm before the end of the year.

    We are in our families Summer schedule which limits my writing time tremendously as we have kids going to and from different Christian Camps all Summer long. Next week I will be a counselor at our Kids Kamp and not able to write at all next week. So, in the meantime I am filling my blogging time with great post by other authors, interesting videos, and book recommendations. It is necessary to take a break in writing from time to gather further thoughts and refresh the mind in order to start back in about August writing full time again with fresh words in our walk with God. Keep studying as you are and soon there will be new post to comment on.

    Stay the course and glean what you can from the post. My prayers are with you and your entire family.

    In Christ,
