3-18-2016 Selfie Worship
People are taking “selfies,” which means they now travel to exotic places where there are breath-taking sights, or high-dollar athletic events, or with family and friends, only to aim the camera at themselves! In the Bible, Christians should “Let no one seek his own, but each one the others’ well -being” (1 Corinthians 10:24 NKJV). “Selfie” photographs can keep us so focused in the moment we lose sight of others. “Selfie” worship means going to “church” and impressing ourselves, and not God. God wants “singing and making melody in your heart,” (Ephesians 5:19 NKJV), not with other instruments; meeting on the “first day of the week” “to break bread” (Acts 20:7 NKJV), not any other day; “baptism” which “saves us” (1 Peter 3:21 KJV), not after we claim we’re saved! “Selfie” worship is not pleasing to God
