Matthew 21:13

"It is written, he said to them, My house will be called a house of prayer . . . ." NIV

"And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer. ."KJV

It seems that we have gotten nestled in our comfortable lifestyle. So much so that we come to the house of God with little thought that we are entering into the sacred presence of our God. Many churches today bring in the culture and lifestyles of the world. We treat the sanctuary as if it were a theater and we are waiting for the show to start. These things are taking away from the honor and priority of God at the expense of our feeling comfortable. God's house is holy and sanctified. Are we acting as though it is? We are being blessed with God's mercy and grace to be able to come together with other believers into His house. It is only right that we treat it as such.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for entering Your house with our own comforts and distractions from having our hearts already prepared in worship and praise. Bring us out of our complacency so that You will be honored and praised in all ways while we are in Your house. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

I think you're right. Too many churches today seem to be more into entertaining than they are into worshipping.
