Insights – The Duty of Worship

Shaun Rieley February 15, 2018 One Comment

Raised in an Evangelical Christian household, Shaun Rieley was used to worship services that had a strong emotional component. But as he got into his teens, and wasn’t able to feel the same things every Sunday, he wondered if there was something wrong with him, or if maybe there was something wrong with his idea of the purpose of worship. As he came to understand praise, adoration and honor for God as a matter of duty, and not as a mere matter of his own personal musical preference, he started to transition from a subjective view of worship as something that was meant to generate a spiritual feeling to a more objective understanding of liturgy as a way to honor God, that transcended his emotions and called him to something deeper.
