The Ten Commandments | part 16: decorum in the worship service

Running time: 8:18

Download MP3 | Download to iTunes

God commands that certain elements be part of a worship service. God commands that these certain elements in a worship service be done in a certain way. God also commands that we conduct ourselves with a certain decorum when it comes to participation in this kind of worship.

Now that we understand what elements God wants in a worship service, we need to think about when He wants us to do each of them. A good Reformed liturgy gives careful thought to the order of the elements in a worship service.

The Ten Commandments | part 14: the second commandment and the elements of worship

Running time: 23:49

If the second commandment teaches the regulative principle, we have to then ask: “What exactly does the Bible say we should do in New Covenant worship”? Without a New Testament book of Leviticus, are we left in the dark?

Behind and implied by the second commandment is this “regulative principle of worship,” which is taught all throughout the Holy Scriptures. Listen to see how and where.

Though the “regulative principle of worship” may be an odd or unfamiliar phrase, we hope you’ll come to undertsand and accept it as a good label for the second commandment’s authoritative import regarding worship.
