what worship should be

Deuteronomy 12:5 Instead, turn to the place Yahveh your God chooses from all your tribes to place his name for his dwelling and go there.
Deuteronomy 12:6 You are to bring there your ascending offerings and sacrifices, your tenths and personal contributions, your solemn pledge offerings and spontaneous voluntary offerings, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks.
Deuteronomy 12:7 You will eat there in the presence of Yahveh your God and enjoy everything you do with your household, because Yahveh your God has empowered you.

what worship should be

The tabernacle was designed to be everything that idolatrous worship places were not. It was a place that God chose. The pagans chose their own places. It was structured for various kinds of offerings. Pagans usually followed one ritual. It was a place for the whole household to enjoy and experience. Pagans usually had a designated head to perform the ritual alone.

New covenant worship is also designed to be very different from what the world can produce. We come into his presence, seek his face, and enjoy fellowship with Christ. We share this joyful experience with our family. We leave refreshed and prepared for our mission to the world around us. This is what worship should be.

Lord, lead us to worship you with vital and honest worship.
