I have been challenging our service leaders at Resolved to make their opening words not about us or our church but about God. About who he is and what he has done for us. As people who live busy distracted lives, when we come to church we need to be reminded who God is and what he has done. Then and only then, with our minds at least starting to think of eternal realities, can we start to praise God.
In this video, the great preacher, Alistair Begg makes this point rather humorously.
