There are higher activities than church celebrations, Christian pop concerts, and endless new worship songs – Christian as they may be. Our Lord is worthy to be praised indeed, but worship choruses alone will never save the world, especially those songs that make no mention of the name of Jesus, nor have any gospel content. Praise is not the power of God unto salvation. The gospel is the power of God. We must not flatter ourselves that we can build a throne for God with lots of new song books. Our commission from God contains the clause ‘Preach the Word.’ ‘It pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe’ (1 Cor. 1:21).
