Jesus Loves Worship

Luke 7:36-50


  • How would you define worship?
  • How do we worship as a church?
  • Does that match our biblical understanding of worship? Jon Bloom (from says: "we will love God to the degree that we recognize the magnitude of our sins and the immensity of God’s grace to forgive them."
    • Do you agree?
    • What are the dangers of getting this balance of recognising our sin AND God's grace wrong? What effect does this have on our ability to worship?

More personal Questions:

  • What do you find holds you back in worship?
  • Do you identify more with Simon or with the woman?
  • If concern for your reputation or fear is preventing you from fully worshipping God, this would be a great time to pray for the assurance of God's love that casts out fear.
