The foolishness caricatured in this video probably needs no comment. It touches on what is perhaps the most common plague of American Evangelicalism: the notion that life (and Church) is all about me – what I like, what I want, etc.
God seems to have other ideas. In Isaiah 48.11 God says:
For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this.
How can I let myself be defamed?
I will not yield my glory to another.
This problem may nowhere be more evident than in the worship wars that erupt in many congregations. What might worship be like if our primary concern was God’s glory? If we primarily asked ourselves what God enjoys?
