This week the blog is sponsored by the G3 Conference.

What do you think of when you consider the weekly and regular worship of God by the gathered church on the Lord’s Day? Do you think of the singing or the preaching or the praying? What happens when God’s people worship him rightly?

Book - Worship - Ultimate - Priority - John

In his book titled, Worship: The Ultimate Priority John MacArthur provides four specific results that occur in the lives of God’s people when they engage in true biblical worship:

As we read about the early church in Acts and as we examine the work of church planting—it seems that these effects are the natural outflow of a healthy church. What about you and your local church? Are these results evident in your context of worship?

Age - Shallowness - Compromise—we - Labor - Reformation

In an age of shallowness and compromise—we must labor to see a reformation of God-honoring worship that will impact the whole church leading to a Christ-honoring impact upon the culture. Far too often, culture has been allowed to impact the church rather than the church impacting the culture. If we’re honest—the worship of God has been regulated by culture rather than God’s Word. We must not be satisfied with this downward trend.

In January, we will gather in Atlanta for the annual G3 Conference—a theology conference for the Church (not just pastors and church leaders). We will attempt to cover issues and topics related to the following:


What is worship?

Regulative, Normative, or Imaginative Principle?

Family - Worship

What is family worship and how should it be practiced?

What are the ordinary means of grace and how should they be implemented in the weekly worship of the church?

Church - Worship

Who is called to lead the church in worship?

Is worship optional?

Role - Music - Play - Worship

What role should music and singing play in our worship?
