A Warning Concerning Thoughtless Worship

Here are some challenging words from Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones:

“Must we not all plead guilty to worship that has been completely thoughtless? We have not even stopped to think what we are doing. We have not stopped to realize what we are engaged in. Surely the fundamental trouble with all of us thoughtlessness. Is it not amazing to realize what a number of things we can do quite mechanically? Have you not often found yourself getting on your knees by the side of your bed and saying your prayers without realizing what you were doing? You were actually thinking about something else while you were uttering the words. We have all done that. It is terrible that it is possible for our worship to be quite thoughtless.” – Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Living Water, page 69.

May we give careful attention to engaging our minds in the pursuit of God.
