Idolatry on Sunday Mornings

Bob Kauflin is the Director of Worship Development for Sovereign Grace Ministries, and until just a few months ago served as a pastor and worship leader for SGM's flagship church, Covenant Life Church (where Joshua "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" Harris is currently senior pastor). He relinquished his position at CLC to devote himself full time to the worship ministry of Sovereign Grace. (*In case you're not aware, SGM produces some of the finest and most Gospel-centered contemporary worship music available. Several songs we sing at BridgePoint that come from this ministry are "In Christ Alone," "Before the Throne of God Above," "The Glories of Calvary," and "You Are the Way," which we recently introduced.)

Bob writes a blog entitled Worship Matters (which you'll see in the "good blogs" section on the right side of this blog), which I read regularly. It's directed specifically toward leaders of corporate worship, and I find the thoughts and biblical insights he offers immeasurably helpful to me as a leader, and as a worshiper.

Some time ago, he did an 8-part series called "Idolatry on Sunday Mornings." For the next 8 weeks, I will link you to one part of this series, as a way of calling our attention to the condition of our hearts when we gather for corporate worship. I hope you'll take the time to read the article, and that it will cause you to examine your heart for any idolatry that might be present there.

Here's Idolatry on Sunday Mornings, Part 1
