The focus has shifted away from the revelation of a Holy God in the Sanctuary to a relaxed, worldly approach. God warned Israel to set limits when approaching Mt. Sinai. They all were required to come to God's dwelling with clean garments and ready to hear from Him. How I long for a day of worship like those in the time of Ezra, when Judah stood up when the Word of God was read and even asked for more when Ezra tired after reading for several hours.
Let us take seriously our need of hearing God's Word and remove the casual attitude from the worship of the Almighty. The church is not the place for frivolity, which only fosters the wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked church.
