THE SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE OF WORSHIP

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Ps 132:7

We will go into his tabernacles; we will worship at his footstool.

ASV

Worship is not just singing and dancing, it’s far more than that. Worship is a continuous yielding of ourselves to the Lord. It affects every area of our lives. It’s not confined to a particular location or structure, we are supposed to worship everywhere at every time. Rom 12:1-2 “So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life — your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life — and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” (THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson.) Worship is an offering of ourselves to the Lord that must be made daily. It is a lifestyle. The Lord does not require just songs alone from us when we come to worship; He requires that we yield our lives totally and completely to Him daily. Anybody that does not live this way but sings worship songs is only making noise, because the song will not ascend to God’s throne. Let us live a life of worship.

Go into today with a renewed determination to offer yourself completely to God in worship.

Prayer: thank you heavenly father for making me your own. I pray your spirit will keep me from doing evil and that I will dwell in your presence all the days of my life. In Jesus name. Amen
