Revelation 3:17, 19
“Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and
do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked . . . As many
as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”
Christian churches have come to the dangerous time predicted long ago. It is a time when we can pat one another on the back, congratulate ourselves and join in the glad refrain, “We are rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing!”
It certainly is true that hardly anything is missing from our churches these days—except the most important thing. We are missing the genuine and sacred offering of ourselves and our worship to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have been surging forward. We are building great churches and large congregations. We are boasting about high standards and we are talking a lot about revival.
But I have a question and it is not just rhetoric: What has happened to our worship?
