Is All of Life Worship? - Sam Waldron

Is all of life worship?

Sam Waldron explains in this video that there is a saying that “All of life is worship,” but that statement is not entirely accurate. All of life is not worship in the same sense that the church gathers for corporate worship. For instance, God never told Moses what furniture to put in his own tent or how to arrange that. While there were certain moral principles, God never told him how to set up his tent.

But, there was another tent. We have chapter after chapter in the Old Testament that tells us exactly how God wanted His tent ordered. There is a difference between our tent and the regulative principle of worship and how God regulates the worship that takes place in His tent.

John 14:21 (NKJV) – “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”


Sam Waldron received a Bachelor of Religious Education from Grand Rapids Baptist College and completed studies equivalent to a Master of Divinity at Trinity Ministerial Academy in Montville, New Jersey in 1982, and graduated from the Master of Theology program at Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary in 1987. He has authored a number of books including The Modern Exposition of the 1689 Baptist Confession, The Reformed Baptist Manifesto, The End Times Made Simple, More of the End Times Made Simple, To Be Continued? and MacArthur’s Millennial Manifesto: A Friendly Response. He is now one of the pastors of Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Owensboro, KY.  He also serves as the Academic Dean of and Professor of Systematic Theology at the Midwest Center for Theological Studies. Sam enjoys reading, weight-lifting, walking, and spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. His book, A Man as Priest in His Home, was published in 2013 and speaks to the need for wise, assertive, sensitive, and compassionate leadership by men in their homes.
