Covenental Corporate Worship
My good friend Josh is doing a great series called Covenantal Corporate Worship. He does a great job of explaining the “why” and the “how” of corporate worship from the perspective of Biblical Theology. Be sure to follow the whole series, I’m sure there will be plenty of gems there. Here are some of my favorites so far:
Worship is the primary matter of the universe, and life is a battle for worship.
Talking about worship is dangerous. Indeed, the first murder in human history took place between two brothers in a disagreement over worship!
Acceptable worship, then, is Israel's faithful response to, or continued expression of, their covenantal relationship with Yahweh that he initiated.
