Would you like to grow in your reverence to God during public and private worship?
God's Will. God's Rules. God's People. God's Worship.
John Forbes explains 1 Timothy 3:13-16 to churches that claim to uphold true worship, but may be missing the mark. This is an amazingly powerful work for today’s contemporary church.
The Christian's Charge Never to Offend God in Worship - by John Forbes (1568-1634)
John Forbes (1568-1634) was a Scottish Minister and fiery reformed preacher who desired to see the church reformed for the glory of God.
Mr. Forbes will show you that the house of God should be ordered by God’s rules. In this it should be seen as wholly appropriate that God’s “people” are to be ordered by God’s rules. Such worship should show reverence, piety, love, desire, and joy in God, and it should be structured and ordered according to God’s holy principles. Worship for the Christian should be an expression of God’s heart back to God filtered through his congregation. We ought to reflect back to God how wonderful and most blessed He is in pure and undefiled worship.
Mr. Forbes demonstrates from 1 Timothy 6:13-16 that it is impossible to worship God by human invention. It is equally impossible to worship God by human ingenuity. And, it is impossible to worship God in an atmosphere that has not been structured and ordered by God and His word. The Regulative Principle expresses clearly that God alone determines the manner sinners are to approach him in worship. Such a doctrine, such a concept, should not be placed by the way side because we and our contemporary culture are more fascinated and captivated by being entertained rather than by God’s truth.
