The highest and holiest purpose of the Church is worship, and the pinnacle of worship is the corporate praise gathering. But sadly, corporate praise in many churches is plagued with â€śworship wars,â€ť as the saints fight one another over the best ways to worship our Lord.
Praise is the emotional expression of delight in God. Scripture instructs us to do corporate praise; corporate praise is greater than individual praise because of the added voices and variety and joy. And the church is the best context for praise.
