Right-Brained and Left-Brained Christian Worship

Rlbrain “Faith is an organ of knowledge, and love an organ of experience.”A.W. Tozer

Christ is the center of our faith and our love. We have the knowledge of God and the experience of the love of God through Jesus. Often, as believers we will tend to weigh experience over knowledge or value knowledge over experience. Somewhere in between these two is the balance of the Christian in life and in worship.

“What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.” I Corinthians 14:15 (ESV)

So, we worship and live in our right and our left brains: singing in the car and reading in the study, serving at the soup line and relaying demographics, dancing in the aisle and reciting a creed, rocking the house with Psalms at 101dbs and expositing the Proverbs at 79 dbs.

With both faith and love, we can know more of who Jesus really is.

  1. Great thoughts here… so often our worship wars center around the imbalance. I like the way you put this together.
