Stopping Others From Worshipping


Church Family,

Matthew 26:7-8 a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. 8And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste?

  1. I must confess there have been times that I let my pride and fear of what others think about me limit how I worship God. The Spirit was leading me to pour out my affections on Jesus, but what would others say?
  2. I must also confess there are times where I have questioned the true worship of others. Maybe it was jealousy, maybe entitlement, I mean if God was going to use someone to worship it had to be me first and then others, right?
  3. In both case I sinned greatly against God and His people. In both cases I hurt the body of Christ. In the first I grieved the Spirit by disobeying His leading me to worship. In the second I quenched the Spirit by falsely judging another person’s worship.
  4. There will always be people who will question your worship of God. Don’t let them discourage you. The saddest part about this is that the ones who often discouraging our worship are the leaders of the church or at least those that we give leadership to.

Can I encourage you today to take some time and praise God? Pour out your love and appreciate for who He is and what He has done for you. Can I also encourage you to spend some time confessing your sin of grieving and quenching the Spirit if it is needed?
