Worship: Original Strategy to Stir Up Love & Good Deeds
Should worship services be a spectator sport? Jesus equipped the early church with a first-century worship-service strategy designed to stir up love and good deeds, edify, encourage, strengthen, and instruct. His original plan called for ordinary believers to regularly and significantly contribute to corporate worship. In New Testament churches, those prompted by the Spirit were free to offer testimonies, share spiritual experiences, give exhortations, lead out in prayer, testify, sing, praise, etc.
