In the 'emerging' generation 'worship' is something to do with style, rather than substance. A matter of live-and-let-live choice. But pure worship is declaring with our words and lives that God is more important to us than anything else - that he is our deepest desire and that he is worth more than anything else we hold dear. Worship is coming before the 'throne' of what is of ultimate value to us. In order to find your altar of worship just follow the trail of how you use your time, energy, money and affections. The more time you spend before that throne, the more your life will reflect what or whom you worship.
It is time to re-engineer what we value most so that worship is something that truly honors God. Some values we hold dear will have to be cast aside, some new ideas adopted, still others will need to be strengthened. Oliver Claassen approaches the topic of worship for today's young generation in Lifesong.
