We continue our series on reformed worship by considering what the elements of worship are that are sanctioned in the Bible.

We look at the ‘‘ordinary’’ elements (reading, preaching and hearing God’s Word, praying and singing) and at the ‘‘extraordinary’’ elements (vows and oaths, fasting and seasons of thanksgiving) and see the Scriptural warrant for them.

This Divine pattern for worship is compared and contrasted with the trend in churches today towards a man-pleasing format with man-invented elements. It is emphasized again that God takes worship very seriously and will not accept the worship of our imagination but only that which is according to His Word
